The next Web Standards meeting is coming up *next* Friday, October 19th!

The Student Unions & Activities (SUA) web team will demonstrate the
awesome power of the University of Minnesota’s new Github Enterprise

From the Git website:

"Git is a free and open source distributed version control system
designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with
speed and efficiency."

"Git is easy to learn and has a tiny footprint with lightning fast
performance. It outclasses SCM tools like Subversion, CVS, Perforce,
and ClearCase with features like cheap local branching, convenient
staging areas, and multiple workflows."

Github Enterprise is an on-campus version of The SUA web
team will explain the basic concept of using distributed version
control and demonstrate how they use it in their workflow.
