So maybe you've never heard of Git, maybe you've heard about Git and want to know more, or maybe you've heard about it a lot and you've even fibbed a little about knowing what it is and now you live a life of lies. Fear no more! Kat will go over Git from the very beginning.

Don't have a Git account? Don't know how to use the terminal? Do you think ssh stands for simply sitting at home? No problem! We'll go over everything you've wanted to know and then some.

At the end of the class you will:

Have a project in Github Alter that project in Github Alter your friend's project in Github Know how to deal with merge errors Create branches And so much more!!

It is HIGHLY recommend that you install git BEFORE the workshop. Go here:

Great initiative!

Just want to clarify that git is NOT GitHub. Git is its own thing invented for the Linux kernel. You do not need a GitHub account to use git.

@Josh S Yes, thank you Josh. However in this workshop we will use Git AND Github to fully optimize the awesomeness of source control and contributing to the open source community!
