If you want someone to hire you, you need to be able to tell your story: who you are, what your plan is, and what defines you. There are key points to address at each point in the story you in order to gain customers. Just because you go out on your own, doesn’t mean you’re not constantly interviewing and telling your story. For example, how do you pitch a co-founder? What’s your customer profile? We’ll talk about all this and more. This session is for you if you’re thinking about working for equity, starting a business, or just going out on your own.

Everyone has heard of git, and most everyone has likely heard both good and bad things about git. And like most useful software, both are true.
This 30 minute seminar will provide a quick overview of git concepts and how to apply them for simple tracking of your day-to-day document and file editing. Emphasis on the half-dozen or so git commands needed for day-to-day use.
Concepts covered include:
- Git repository model and your working copy (i.e., “sandbox”)
- Upstream vs downstream repositories
- The git index and why it matters
- How to git help (pun intended)
