Team Collaboration With GitHub

Team Collaboration With GitHub
GitHub has become the corner stone for all things open source software. Developers love it, collaborate on it and are constantly building awesome projects through it. Apart from hosting our code, GitHub's main attraction is using it as a collaborative tool. In this tutorial, let's explore some of the most useful GitHub features, especially for working in teams, making it all the more efficient, productive and, most importantly, fun! One thing that I find very useful is integrating the Github Wiki into the main source code project. This tutorial assumes that you are already familiar with Git, the open source distributed version control system, created by Linus Torvalds in 2005. In the world of software projects, it is inevitable that we will find ourselves working in a team to deliver a project. If you prefer a screencast for a visual walk-through, hop just below to view it and refer to this tutorial as side notes: There are generally two ways of setting up Github for team collaboration:

A successful Git branching model » In this post I present the development model that I’ve introduced for some of my projects (both at work and private) about a year ago, and which has turned out to be very successful. I’ve been meaning to write about it for a while now, but I’ve never really found the time to do so thoroughly, until now. I won’t talk about any of the projects’ details, merely about the branching strategy and release management. It focuses around Git as the tool for the versioning of all of our source code. (By the way, if you’re interested in Git, our company GitPrime provides some awesome realtime data analytics on software engineering performance.)

Tagging Like most VCSs, Git has the ability to tag specific points in history as being important. Generally, people use this functionality to mark release points (v1.0, and so on). In this section, you’ll learn how to list the available tags, how to create new tags, and what the different types of tags are. Listing the available tags in Git is straightforward. Just type git tag: $ git tag v0.1 v1.3

List of HTTP status codes This is a list of Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) response status codes. It includes codes from IETF internet standards, other IETF RFCs, other specifications, and some additional commonly used codes. The first digit of the status code specifies one of five classes of response; an HTTP client must recognise these five classes at a minimum. The phrases used are the standard wordings, but any human-readable alternative can be provided. Unless otherwise stated, the status code is part of the HTTP/1.1 standard (RFC 7231).[1] The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) maintains the official registry of HTTP status codes.[2] Your One-Stop Guide to Laravel Commands In this day and age, it's quite normal for a developer to have an understanding of consoles, and how to issue basic commands. But what if you could code your own custom commands to improve your workflow? If we look back to Laravel 3, you might remember that it offered tasks.

How to GitHub: Fork, Branch, Track, Squash and Pull Request - This guide will teach you how to properly contribute to open source projects on GitHub. It assumes that you already know about how to use Git for version control and that you already have a GitHub account. Psstt.. if you already have a GitHub account and you want to earn more money, sign up for with your GitHub profile and we'll pair you with people looking for developers based on your portfolio!

Using git-flow to automate your git branching workflow Vincent Driessen's branching model is a git branching and release management strategy that helps developers keep track of features, hotfixes and releases in bigger software projects. This workflow has lot of commands to type and remember, though, so there's also the git-flow library of git subcommands that helps automate some parts of the flow to make working with it a lot easier. After installing git-flow (brew install git-flow), you can start using git-flow in your repository by using it's init command. You can use it in existing projects, but let's start a new repository: $ git flow init Initialized empty Git repository in ~/project/.git/ No branches exist yet. Navigating through the git history like a boss [ If you're not into reading why I find git history useful, you may jump right into the command-line coolness! ] I love reading git logs! First, because it reveals the people and processes behind software. Software is not just a bunch of code that works (or more commonly, doesn't work...) - it's also a bunch of people crafting something together for a long time.

15 Incredible Sites Built With Twitter Bootstrap Here at Untame we have a special place in our hearts that is only filled by one thing – responsive design and smart design (okay, okay: two things). Twitter Bootstrap is a flexible front end framework that provides developers and designers an incredible set of tools that they can wield in as large or as small a capacity as needed. In any number of uses, there are tons of great sites that benefit from the Twitter Bootstrap framework and we want to highlight just a few! The Pink League Improvely Discoursehq Speaking With the Ember.js Core Team Single page apps are the new hotness; everyone's trying to figure out the easiest way to build them. But it's more than just finding a couple of controls to slap together and sprinkling Ajax pixie dust on it. Building scalable and maintainable apps is serious business, which requires serious tools. Ember.js is a very serious framework for doing just that. Check out the interview I did with Ember.js Core Team leads, Yehuda Katz and Tom Dale, as they discuss what prompted them to begin the Ember project, its design philosophy, and where it fits into an already crowded library ecosystem.

GitHub Flow – Scott Chacon August 31, 2011 Issues with git-flow I travel all over the place teaching Git to people and nearly every class and workshop I’ve done recently has asked me what I think about git-flow. Getting Started - Google Maps JavaScript API v3 Audience This documentation is designed for people familiar with JavaScript programming and object-oriented programming concepts. You should also be familiar with Google Maps from a user's point of view.

a practical git introduction In just a few years, git has become the dominant version control system in the software industry. Despite its widespread use, it often still appears as either magical or cumbersome when its core concepts are not fully grasped. This post is a walkthrough of practical git usage that will detail how git internally handles things.
