This coming Wednesday at 7.30pm, Gerard Ryan will be giving a 2 hour tutorial on the basics of Git, the version control system. Entry for the tutorial is €2 for 091 Labs members and €5 for non-members.
Git has been gaining popularity since it was created by Linus Torvalds in ’05 and various online source code repositories like Github, Gitorious, and BitBucket that support it have been booming in recent years with user activity as programmers and web developers move from other version control systems like Mercurial.
Gerard will explain the Pros and Cons of using Git and he’ll cover what’s needed to get you started using Git following the basics commands and will expand into some more advanced areas along with answering questions if time allows.
Installing Git is not included in the time from 7.30pm but it’s really easy to install for most operating systems from here. I’ll be in from 7pm for anyone who has any questions or problems with getting Git running.
