Git it Together–Leveraging Your Software Development Team’s Favorite Tool

Many software development teams manage their code with Git, but can writers reap the benefits of this distributed source control system? Absolutely! Join Morgan Hancock to learn why Git should be every writer’s go-to version-control system.  This webinar will show how Git can solve many problems, including the following:

Problem: My peer review process is a hassle and takes me forever to implement changes.

Solution: Stop creating PDFs and review packages, and use Git and GitHub for your reviews! Git can help you reduce the time needed for review since your reviewer can work in your source files and you can accept or reject the edits quickly.

 

Problem: I got too creative and ruined everything/Somehow I broke the build.

Solution: git reset –hard HEAD. That’s Git for “oops, let’s pretend that never happened.” But seriously, Git makes it pretty hard to destroy your project beyond repair. That means you can get creative without fear.

That’s just a preview of how Git will drastically reduce the number of headaches in your life. You don’t want to miss this webinar!

Webinars are held every Wednesday afternoon from 2-3 PM EDT/EST (GMT-4/5).

A majority of online courses are held Tuesdays-Thursdays between 10:00 AM-1:00 PM EDT/EST (GMT-4/5), as to not conflict with webinar times.

To participate in a webinar and an online course, you must be able to access Adobe Connect, STC’s online meeting space. You can test your Adobe Connect connection here. Adobe Connect is a standard web seminar tool (no separate download required) and all you need is a reliable Internet connection and phone line, or a computer with VoIP capabilities.

I registered for an online course, what are my next steps?

Once you register for an online course, you will receive a confirmation receipt that day. A majority of our online courses uses Moodle, STC’s course management site, which attendees will receive the login instructions two (2) days before the course begins.

If you cannot access Adobe Connect and/or Moodle (as needed), then you will not be able to successfully complete an online course.

I registered for a webinar, but will be unable to attend. Will a recording be available?

If a registered attendee is unable to attend a webinar that day, they will receive an email with a link to the recording, and an evaluation link along with the PDF of the presentation.

I registered for a webinar and/or an online course, but cannot attend at that time. Will I receive a refund?

If a registered attendee is unable to attend a webinar and/or an online course, the cost is transferable to a future event, but is not refundable. Online registration closes one-two business days before the education event begins.

I want to take a specific course that isn't listed online. Will it be offered in the future?

STC rotates its courses every year as we try to offer the most popular ones within the first half of the year. Online courses are subject to change or are offered more than once per quarter. If a course is not listed, STC will offer it again in the following year.
