This coming Wednesday at 7.30pm, Gerard Ryan
<https://twitter.com/grdryn> will be giving a 2 hour tutorial on the
basics of Git <http://git-scm.com/>, the version control system. Entry
for the tutorial is EUR2 for 091 Labs members and EUR5 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
<http://github.com/>, Gitorious <http://gitorious.org/>, and BitBucket
<http://bitbucket.org/> 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
<http://git-scm.com/download>. I'll be in from 7pm for anyone who has
any questions or problems with getting Git running.
