Andrew Pam will talk about the history and use of version control
systems, briefly mentioning Xanadu, SCCS, RCS, CVS, Subversion and
Bitkeeper and including why and how to use "git", an essential tool for
all software developers and system administrators and the basis for
github and gitlab. Attendees are encouraged to experiment with git
during and after the presentation.
Andrew first discovered an interest in boolean logic when his mother
carried him in her arms at just the right height to reach light switches
as they passed through doorways. He was lucky enough to go to a school
with an obsolete PDP/8e: switches, lights, core memory, paper tape,
punched cards and all. He first started programming on a TRS-80 model 1
level I and the first computer he owned was a Commodore VIC-20. He has
run the gaming Miniconference at linux.conf.au in the past and enjoys
playing computer games on Linux systems. He is the current president of
Linux Users of Victoria.
There will also be the usual casual hands-on workshop, Linux
installation, configuration and assistance and advice. Bring your laptop
if you need help with a particular issue.
