Gack, I lost the version I had due to an accidental tap of the back button. I'd be happy if someone else wanted to add to this....

Agenda[edit]

We should do this in two parts, probably.

Introduction to Version Control[edit]

  • "Keeping a forever history of your work."
  • What is a repository?
  • What is a branch?
  • Pros and cons of centralized versus distributed version control systems.

Advanced trickery[edit]

  • Rewriting history, hosting your own repositories on the network, and so much more.

Times[edit]

What works for people? Suggestions welcome.

  • weekdays between 8 AM and 5 PM
  • wednesday evenings between 6 PM and 8 PM
  •  ?

Linux System Admin class on Tuesdays is now working on Git. Interested in taking part?
