Git Bootcamp - An All-Day Workshop
Distributed version control is all the rage these days, but is it worth it? It has been transformative for the dozens of organizations and thousands of developers that I've mentored on the unique implementation called Git. But don't take my word for it. Discover the joy of a version control system that works for you, not against you, in a hands-on workshop. Bring a Windows, Mac, or Linux laptop and we'll install, set up, use and bend Git into workflows that weren't even possible with the version control systems of yesteryear. Be prepared to rethink how lightweight, fast, and refreshing source code control can be. After completing this workshop you'll be able to do practical work with Git for your day job or weekend OSS hobby
This full day workshop takes you from the ground up with Git. By the end of the day you'll be proficient enough to contribute to an open source project using Git or to leverage inside your corporate as the canonical version control system.
This session is a workshop. Please come prepared.
- Please bring a Windows, Mac or Linux laptop
- Please have administrative privileges on the laptop for installing software
