Getting Git

Webuquerque in April ‘11

Simple Version Control

This event has passed. However, the recap is available!

Used to manage everything from the Linux kernel to Ruby on Rails to jQuery, Git is rapidly becoming the version control solution of choice, especially in the web community. Fortunately, Git also happens to be a fantastic tool that is both extremely powerful and easy to use.

Local web developer Brian Arnold will talk about why you should use Git, how to do so, and how you can use it to share your work with others via Github. Brian's presentation will focus on a real-world project, giving you the context you need to start using Git immediately.

Version control seems daunting, but Git makes it simple, and even kind of fun.

About Our Speaker

Brian Arnold

Brian Arnold

While other kids were out doing normal kid things like sports or something, Brian spent as much of his childhood as possible in front of computer screens. As such, he's been developing software in a variety of forms since 1992.

Having received a BS in CS from UNM, Brian has worked as a professional in software development for 12 years, working for everything from small seat-of-the-pants web shops to America Online during its heyday, creating both desktop and web-based applications (vastly preferring the latter).

He has a lovely wife and two cute little dogs, and ranks among the top 5% of fake guitarists in Rock Band. He will happily chew your ear off about any of those things, amazing web technologies like HTML5 and modern JavaScript techniques, or really just about anything. He also tweets about these things over at @brianarn and can be found on a variety of services as listed in his Google Profile.
