git + me + octocat = <3

github, octocat, coding, learning, programming, education, life

My adventures in ‘git’…

First of all, I love doing anything command line.  It takes me back to the old versions of Windows and me as a 16 year old typing in random things just so that I could feel like a computer geek. 

Anyway, a part of my personal development plan includes me taking the initiative to learn new computery things on my own.  The first on my list was git.  I powered up my tablet and got cozy on the couch and watched 6 hours of git tutorials on my lynda.com account.  I took screen shots of things that seemed important.  I then went back through with my laptop and followed step by step. 

Let’s just say, I’m in happy land.  I even changed my ‘terminal’ to a friendlier color for my eyes and I started by practicing uploading committing my homework assignments from my Java class. 

Validation…

The fact that I sat in a coffee shop over the course of two days, learning git to the extent that I felt super confident that I didn’t need the tutorials again — made me feel validated.  I wasn’t frustrated, I enjoyed the 12+ hours I spent learning git to the extent that I could teach someone else (a beginner of course).  What makes me know that I am truly following my dreams and passions is that at the end of a long day coding/learning, I look up and realize that my day has gone by.  I find myself not being able to sleep because my thoughts are full of ideas and things that I want to check out. 

OctoCat rulez…

Well, the GitHub OctoCat makes me happy because he’s adorable.  He makes repositories worth learning lol. 

One ring shall rule them all!…

This has absolutely NOTHING to do with my Git/GitHub experience.  I am just going to reward myself with a LoTR marathon tonight =^.^=

    That’s awesome! I checked out Lynda before, but I didn’t know they had tutorials for Git. I was considering studying Git through Git Immersion — did you try that tutorial as well or only the one at Lynda’s?

      I usually check Lynda first considering I pay a monthly subscription and so far they have not failed me. They have an iPad app so I usually prop up my iPad and go through the tutorials with the instructor on my laptop.

      The git tutorial was REALLY thorough and if you can I’d encourage you to do it. I had never heard of Git Immersion until you mentioned it. I can definitely check it out for supplemental learning, but so far I’ve been able to setup everything with what I learned from the Lynda.com tutorials.

      Will you be making a GitHub account once you get everything squared away? If so we could follow each other, I’m super n00b but I’ve already added home assignments and just added the shell to my future personal website/portfolio!

    Appreciating the persistence you put into your website and
    detailed information you provide. It’s good to come across
    a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed material.
    Excellent read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

    Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had
    problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a
    good platform.
