Our next meeting is this Thursday, where Andrew McNabb will be
"A Git's Perspective on Revision Control
Version control is essential for both independent development and team
projects. "My program worked until I made a tiny little change. Can
you pass me off anyway?" "Is there any way to undelete my files? I
meant to delete *.bak but accidentally deleted *." "My lab partner just
broke our program. What did he change?" Life is so much simpler when
you use a revision control system.
Learn about the differences between centralized version control systems
(e.g., CVS and Subversion) and distributed systems (e.g., Git and
Mercurial). Then learn how to choose Git for all your version control
needs. The meeting will include a practical tutorial on how to use Git,
much of which will also apply to Subversion."
If you've never thought about using revision control, you are
required to come to this meeting. If you have thought about using
revision control, now is your chance to get started (you are required
to come). If you already use version control, you are also required
to come. Seriously, it'll be a great presentation! Come at 7:00 if
you need in-person help with your computer or if you'd like to help
someone needing in-person help with his/her computer.
