Git Like A Rockstar

Paris Buttfield-Addison, University of Tasmania

Track: Tools & Tech; Audience: Beginner

Git is the new hotness (other than, oh, all the stuff Apple is doing…). If you’re a developer, on any platform, you need to know, understand, love, breathe and speak Git.

This session will cover the basics of Git, with a particular focus on popular Git-hosting startup GitHub (although all techniques are generally applicable to Git) and then conclude with a discussion and demonstration of the pitfalls, positives and traps of Git when coding for the Mac or iOS. Attendees will come away confident in their ability to use Git with their current and new projects, and will perhaps eventually become raging Git evangelists themselves!
