Recap: Getting Git

April 28, 2011 Zerek Welz

For our April 6 event, Brian Arnold discussed why you should use Git, how to do so, and how you can use it to share your work with others via Github. If you were unable to attend or need a refresher, we've got you covered:


April, the month of Fools, Patriots and the Earth. The month where Brian Arnold decided to come down to Webuquerque and share some knowledge on Git. Brian covered the basics to get you up and running with your own repository to keep your work safe with a clear history of where you came from.

Git Offers:

To install, follow the instructions for your operating system. (Note: in Terminal, don't enter the $, as those represent the prompt.)

The repository Brian used for his demonstrations is available on GitHub.
