Git: Learning To Love The DAG For Fun And Profit

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, 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, Parrot VM, Perl 5 and 6, Firefox, and even to Git itself. Duke is a member of Portland Perl Mongers and provides strategic Git consulting via Leto Labs LLC. Most recently, Duke co-founded BrewPony, 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.

    Rich Hickey (creator of Clojure and Datomic) proposed a novel use of Git metadata for mechanized documentation. See his blog on Codeq: http://blog.datomic.com/2012/10/codeq.html

    Way cool. I use git a lot but am just a beginner. Thanks for this!

    Good news, everyone! We've been hooked up with a larger space and will be able to accommodate twice as many attendees!

    Once I have all the details hammered out I'll let y'all know where it'll be and open up RSVPs once again.

    Stay tuned!

      Looks like I forgot to flip more than just the one bit. Thanks for fixing my flub, Fred!

    While I see references to a waitlist, I don't see a link that lets one get on it.

    Waitlist now available for those who weren't able to snag an RSVP.

    Filled up fast. I'll sit on the floor. :-)

    Hello, all! We've maxed out our RSVPs. From here on out we're accepting people to the waitlist.

    If you've RSVPd and find you're unable to attend, PLEASE un-RSVP to free up a slot for someone else.

    Thank you!

    True dat. But Duke was going to be in town that month for Google Summer of Code mentor stuff and his schedule was filling up quickly, sooooo...

    But now you know what you'll be doing for at least one evening in October, right? ;)
