On Monday, July 23rd at 18:30, Haifux will gather to hear a talk by Eli
Git for solo projects too
Git is well-known as the tool for collaborating in free software
projects, and the Linux kernel in particular. What seems to be less
known, is how useful it is even in a single developer scenario.
This is a slideless, demonstration-based talk, walking through the
practical work with Git as a most valuable tool for keeping a solo
project under control, and helping in real-life situations. A simple
programming project will be started and manipulated, showing useful
The basic use of git will be demonstrated and explained in the talk's
first half, showing how to create a git repository, making commits,
fixing the last commit, and how git is useful to keep the project clean
In the second half, some deeper understanding about how git works will
be gained. Based upon this, sophisticated manipulations will be
explained, including how to modify or eliminate changes made in the
past, and alter the commit history to make a clueless debugging session
look as if you had it all figured out from the start.
If time allows, the talk will close with showing how git can be used to
efficiently back up the project.
Above all, it will be shown how to avoid losing a good snapshot of the
project, no matter what you failed to do with git.
No previous knowledge in Git (or whatsoever) is assumed, but Git-savvy
participants are also welcomed to share their experience.
We meet in Taub building, room 6. For instructions see:
