Getting Started with Git and GitHub

See online version at

This workshop is inspired by the "Don't be afraid to commit" workshops run at various PyCon events, and documented at readthedocs but with a focus on getting you going with Git and GitHub (*), and submitting minor fixes to existing projects. We'll also look briefly at your methods for recovering from diaster.

* Other repositories do exist

The purpose of the workshop

We'll hopefully get you in a position where you're familiar with the basic concepts involved with Command-line Git, GitHub and submitting minor pull requests.

What we're covering

  • Hands on- how to set up and use Git and GitHub
  • Hands on- how to submit brief documentation fixes to projects on GitHub
  • Hands on- how to submit a pull request to a project hosted on GitHub
  • Extras- how to recover from disaster
  • Extras- summary of all the Git commands we've covered
  • Extras- references, links to further resources

What we're not covering

  • GUIs for Git/GitHub- too many different variants exist to easily teach in one class, and besides a bit of CLI-fu is a good thing
  • Specific Open Source Projects
