April Meeting: Git And GitHub Interactive Lab
Eventbrite

This Monday’s Topic


We will look at the basics of the Git workflow and working collaboratively with distributed version control on GitHub. This will be a beginner friendly interactive and hands-on workshop.

If you do not have access to a laptop, that is totally fine - we can pair up with a neighbor, or follow along with the presentation.


If you want to follow along on a laptop, before the meeting, it would be helpful if you:

1. Download a free text editor. Some text editor options are AtomSublimeText, or Webstorm. Atom is free. SublimeText and Webstorm offer free trials. All three run on Windows and Mac.

2. Create a free GitHub account at: https://github.com/join 

3. Install git. Here are instructions: https://git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Getting-Started-Installing-Git

All of the parallel parking spaces along the front of Cummins Station (and the nearby streets) are free after 6pm (http://www.parkitdowntown.com/parking/on-street-parking). A few of these spots are reserved for valet in the evenings, so if you see a valet sign, park elsewhere.

Across the street from Cummins Station, is the cheapest paid parking option.
Rates: $1.50 first 1/2 hour; $6 first hour; $3 each additional hour; $24 daily max; Special events pricing as posted.

Nashville Women Programmers 5th Birthday Celebration
Eventbrite

It’s been five years since Nashville Women Programmers held our first meeting, with just a handful of people in attendance. 92 meetings and 1200+ (!!!) Meetup members later, we are still growing our skills and community.

Please join us for a birthday celebration Monday, August 13th.

We’ll have pizza, drinks (water, sodas, bubbly waters, teas, coffee), piñata decor, and of course, CUPCAKES! All thanks to the generous support of Eventbrite!

We’ll take a look back at how the group has grown and evolved, and discuss what our members want to see in the next year ahead.

It doesn't matter if you've never been to a meeting, haven't been in a while, or are a regular attendee. All are welcome and we'd love to see you!
