Git + GitHub version control

Need to manage documents in a revision manner? You need revision control software! We are offering training on two of today’s most popular offerings, Git and Github. Together they power local and geographically divergent teams to collaborate on projects.

The charge for this course is $15 per participant. Parents must accompany children and participate if the child is part of the course.

Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency.

Git is easy to learn and has a tiny footprint with lightning fast performance. It outclasses SCM tools like Subversion, CVS, Perforce, and ClearCase with features like cheap local branching, convenient staging areas, and multiple workflows.

GitHub is a Web-based Git repository hosting service. It offers all of the distributed revision control and source code management (SCM) functionality of Git as well as adding its own features. Unlike Git, which is strictly a command-line tool, GitHub provides a Web-based graphical interface and desktop as well as mobile integration. It also provides access control and several collaboration features such as bug tracking, feature requests, task management, and wikis for every project.

ABOUT THE CLASS: This is a hands-on introduction to GitHub. A laptop is needed to follow along and try the exercises. No prior knowledge of GitHub is required or assumed. Participants should be able to install software and edit documents in a text editor of their choice. No programming ability is required. The course is suitable for those wanting to use GitHub to manage programming or non-programming projects.

IMAGES AND RECORDING: Robot Garden has cameras in place for safety and security. By entering the facility or participating in activities at Robot Garden, the participant agrees to have their image and or voice recorded by Robot Garden, it’s staff, volunteers or other participants and that those images may be posted online.
