Git is a version control system designed to allow software engineers to collaborate on projects easily and have a history of their code revisions. It is widely used in industry and you'll probably use it in some of your classes. Unfortunately, this isn't really something that's taught in courses and by the time you reach the job market, you might already be expected to know how to do this. 

So join us for a quick presentation on how a common git workflow is executed. No BS, no theory, just a nice interactive tutorial where you will make your own clone, commit, and push, to make your very own code change. All done by command line so you will be able to handle anything your future employers will throw your way. 

 

Pre-Work:

 

Fill out the google form sent in 11/17 email with your github username and download git. 

 

Run these commands on your terminal/command prompt/powershell after you install git, replacing the example name and email with your own.

git config --global user.name "John Doe"

git config --global user.email johndoe@example.com
