Git and GitHub Talk in Hawaii!

code, git, github, community, tech 0 comments suggest edit

Next week my wife and I celebrate our tenth anniversary in Oahu with the kids. It’s been a great ten years and I’m just so lucky to have such a wonderful woman and partner in my life along with two deviously great kids.

And what better way to celebrate an anniversary than to give a talk on Git and GitHub for Windows Developers!

UPDATE: Immediately after the talk we’re going to have a drinkup!


Before I go further, I need you to soak in that logo for a minute. At first glance, it looks like it was drawn by a five year old phoning in a homework assignment. But let it wash over you and the awesomeness starts to make itself apparent.

It’s a commission from where you can spend…

$5 for a logo guaranteed to

You might even learn something from these logos. For example, if you’ve heard the term “Map Reduce” and you know it’s probably useful but don’t understand what it means. You can thank me later for the following:


But I digress.

This is my first time speaking in Hawaii and I’m excited. I hope this begins a trend of being invited to speak in lush tropical islands.

    It is a tough choice but I think I like Jason's logo a little bit better than your map reduce logo... but not by much. Will you be posting your talk for those of us that can't make the trip to Hawaii?

    Really? You couldn't shell out $15 more for the hires and jingle?

    Ruffin: don't talk to me man. I didn't set up the logos. ;) This was done by the organizer.

    Timely topic! I've been using Git on the side for non .NET projects for a while. Now, I'm working on switching over a .NET team to Git. For hosting Git remotes on Windows (can't introduce a Linux machine just for this, and cloud hosting like GitHub is not an option), what's your current recommendation or what has the most momentum? GitStack? msysGit with CopSSH? Gitolite? I suppose it's probably more of a question about setting up the SSH server?

    BTW - The horrible MapReduce logo is also for an OUDL talk (, the week before yours.
