Git. It's the new hotness. If you listen to the talking heads of our industry, git is all that and a bag of chips.
But what it also is? Difficult to learn and not particularly approachable. It's a very special sort of voodoo.
Jonathan "Duke" Leto, Git Witchdoctor Extraordinaire, will be joining us on October 22nd to give us an introduction to the arcane mysteries of this distributed version control system. No eye of newt or head of chicken is required for the love potion he'll brew. By the end of the evening you, will love Git, too.
Jonathan "Duke" Leto is the Root Commit of PDX Git Together (http://pdxgit.com/), the world's first Git user group as well as a published mathematician and scientist.
Duke is a long-time and active contributor to CPAN (https://metacpan.org/author/LETO), Parrot VM (http://parrot.org/), Perl 5 and 6, Firefox, and even to Git itself. Duke is a member of Portland Perl Mongers (http://pdx.pm.org/) and provides strategic Git consulting via Leto Labs LLC (http://letolabs.com). Most recently, Duke co-founded BrewPony (http://brewpony.com), a service which delivers freshly roasted artisan coffee to your door, within 7 days of roasting. He'd like to say all of this keeps him out of trouble, but … well … he can't.
