THIS TUTORIAL HAS REQUIREMENTS AND INSTRUCTIONS LISTED BELOW
If you’ve worried about learning Git or even signing up or GitHub, worry no
more. In this half day session, Brent Beer will guide you through everything
needed to make your first open source contribution using Git and GitHub. Even
if you are familiar with Git and GitHub, you’ll walk away with a better
understanding of workflows that will take your development to the next level.
We’ll be looking at the GitHub Flow and its impact on the development process,
tips for effective GitHub-based communication, reasons why merge conflicts
aren’t actually scary, and techniques for getting out of almost any
Git-related jam. At the conclusion of this session we’ll see why crafting a
story through commit history makes it easy for us to understand how we got to
a solution, and also makes it easier to work together than alone.
