And so it begins. Anxious and excited describe my feelings as I struggled to fall asleep the night before the summer Bitmaker Labs Cohort started on June 3rd, 2013.
Beginning a dedicated 9 weeks with aspiring developers is motivating. The eve of our first day, I met with four fellow students, which was great to discuss everything stirring in our minds.
On the 1st day we learned how to use unix, git, github, and how to utilize these tools to collaborate with others. For our group assignment. One person would clone the assigned Bitmaker repository and the rest would clone that user’s repo, updates to the file, then commit and push. It was important at the end for each team member to clone the repo to their own individual github account, which required the use of git clone.
Utlizing git remote -v was important to make sure, when pushing our new repo up, that we were properly pushing to our desired repo. https://help.github.com/articles/changing-a-remote-s-url
During certain periods of the day, I felt I had a strong grasp of the material, but at the same time, there were times were I felt lost and unprepared for the course.
