An introduction to programming basics in Bash and GitHub that are often assumed, but that you might have never had good instruction on!
The first half of this workshop will introduce you navigating your computer’s filesystem and basic Bash commands to remove the fear of working with the command line to give you the confidence to use it to increase your productivity.
The second half of this workshop will introduce you to Git, a powerful tool for keeping track of changes you make to the files in a project. You can use it to synchronize your work across computers, collaborate with others, and even deploy applications to the cloud. In this workshop, you will learn the basics to understand and use Git, including working with the popular "social coding" website, GitHub.
