Git is a distributed revision control system with an emphasis on speed, data integrity, and support for distributed, non-linear workflows. Git was initially designed and developed by Linus Torvalds for Linux kernel development in 2005, and has since become the most widely adopted version control system for software development. We’ll get our feet wet with setting up and maintaining a local Git repository, using command line and GUI tools, and linking it to one of the major repositories (GitHub, BitBucket, etc.).
Our meeting will be at Excella Consulting, Corporate Research Center, 2000 Kraft Drive, Blacksburg, on February 12th, from 6PM until 7:30PM.
