**Early Bird! This class is only $15 (normally $30) until October 1st!
This will be a one-time workshop on Saturday, October 22nd 2016 from 1:00pm-4:00pm. This is not a continuing series.
Ever make changes that broke your code and forgot how your code worked before? Want to work with someone on a code project, but aren’t sure who has the latest version of a particular file? Version control can solve these problems and more!
Git is a popular version control application that can track your code changes, as well as help you to be more methodical in your programming. Win win! This session will introduce the basics of version control, how to use git to keep track of your changes to a project, and using GitHub to collaborate with other developers.
Want to try git for yourself? Github has a 15-minute tutorial you can go through on your own here.
This workshop will cover…
• The basics of command line
• Navigating the filesystem with Bash
• The basic concepts of version control
• The differences between git and other version control applications
• Fundamental git commands to track changes to a small project
• The basics of collaborating on code with other developers in a professional environment
• How to use GitHub
Please bring a wifi-enabled laptop (for the hands-on portion of the workshop).

If you need help with any of these pre-reqs, please feel free to come out to one of our Code & Coffee meetups. This is a great place to ask any questions you might have!
This workshop will be taught by Kevin Jones-Evans with the help of several teaching assistants.
Kevin is a lead software developer with Riverside Research where he codes in Python and tries to teach solid programming techniques to people who love math. He earned a B.S. in Computer Science from Wright State and has worked professionally as a software developer for 6 years. In his non-work time, he enjoys cross fit, video games, learning more about everything computer-related, and spending time with his wife and cats.
If you're interested in helping out as a teaching assistant, pleaselet us know.
