Using Git and GitHub Is Far Easier Than Creating a Catchy Title for this Presentation

Using Git and Github can be complex, but naming things is one of the most difficult parts of being a software developer. The good news is the only naming involved is your repository on GitHub. What are Git and GitHub? This adequately-titled presentation has you covered! Learn basic steps needed to get started using Git and GitHub. Git is an extensive tool with numerous capabilities that can feel overwhelming if taken as a whole. GitHub is loaded with a vast number of features that can seem intimidating on first look. In this presentation, you’ll be introduced to a minimal, yet powerful, toolset that will get you comfortable using version control in no time. You won’t be any better at naming things, but you’ll gain the confidence to take that first step and jump into the world of Git and GitHub!

Kattni is a creator, maker, photographer, programmer, intermittent chef, one-time gardener, and occasional musician. She is tolerated by two cats who continue to let her live with them.

She left her job in 2023 to pursue her passions full time. She is passionate about learning new things, creating thorough documentation, and sharing what she knows and learns. You can find project builds, tech tutorials, and approachable information on her blog. You can support her work on GitHub and on her Patreon.

Kattni is the PyOhio 2024 Conference Chair. In early 2023, she informed the Chair and Program Chair that she wanted to “get involved”, but did “not want to start small”. She may spend the next few years rethinking that strategy. For now, she’s super excited to be overseeing the first in-person PyOhio since 2019, and is looking forward to bringing folks together again soon.

She spent the last six years as an open source community leader, mentor, technical writer, embedded software developer, open source project library manager, and, a few times, an embedded hardware designer.

Plus we'll have our regular features: Jobs Looking for People, People Looking for Jobs, and much more!
