THIS TUTORIAL HAS REQUIREMENTS AND INSTRUCTIONS LISTED BELOW
You’ve dabbled a little in version control using Git. You know about commits and pulls and branches. You may have even tried Git to rebase something once (and remember getting kinda freaked out by the headless thing). You can follow along with the various tutorials you’ve found online. But now you’ve been asked to implement a work flow strategy for your company’s next project and you’re not really sure how (or where) to start.
In this session you will work closely with long-time version control lover Emma Jane Westby to create the perfect work flow strategy for each of your projects. This is a process workshop designed to help you sort through the pros and cons of different types of work flows. It is not just a tutorial on how to run Git from the command line—it’s a workflow overhaul. Promise.
TUTORIAL REQUIREMENTS AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR ATTENDEES
* People with a very limited knowledge of Git will do better in this workshop.
* Technical project managers, developers transitioning to management positions, and developers looking to accept community contributions for their projects will get the most out of this session.
* To get the most out of this session you should bring your favorite diagramming tools (pencil and paper are perfect!).
* If you want to test out the commands, you should also bring a computer with Internet capabilities, and access to a remote repository, such as GitHub or BitBucket.
