  5. 5. 5 What exactly is GitHub?  GitHub is an online repository for sharing projects with version control (Git)  Provides a social networking aspect of open-source project work  Origins - 24 February 2009: First year it had 46,000 public repositories  July 2012 Techcrunch: Andreeson Horowitz Venture Capitol announced a whopping $100 million investment in GitHub  December 2013: GitHub announced it had reached 10 million repositories (now at 25.8 million repositories)  The future of open-source (perhaps most) software development is HERE! ©2015 Rocket Software, Inc.

  6. 6. 6 What is Git and why is it important? Git is a Version Control (Source Control) System • Much like CVS, SVN - command line interface  some commands (for example, “commit”) will seem familiar across systems • Encourages distributed or peer-to-peer repositories (unlike CVS,SVN!) • Roots in Mercurial and Bitkeeper Invented by Linus Torvalds and Linux developers • Solves many ‘distributed’ VCS problems • Named after the British term ‘Git’ - an unpleasant or contemptible person – Linus poking fun at himself! ©2015 Rocket Software, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
  7. 7. 7 GitHub concepts  Information can be made Public (free) or Private (small charge)  Public repositories can be “zipped” and downloaded anonymously  If you want to contribute or comment, you must create a GitHub account (free!)  “Fork” a repository to make your own independent copy  “Pull request” is how you notify the admin that you want to contribute your changes “upstream” to the repository you forked (the admin “Pulls” in your changes from your repo and merges into original code stream).  A windows GUI local client (or Linux) is available for syncing to a GitHub repo  Will demo the use of both ©2015 Rocket Software, Inc.
