We're going to try an experiment this time too. The [log in to unmask] account has transitioned to Google, so we can use YouTube and Google+. I'm going to bring a web cam and try to broadcast the presentation to YouTube. Watch this list around noon Friday for a link to the video stream.

We've done some testing, but there is no guarantee that this will work. Please bear with us if there are glitches.

The next Web Standards meeting is coming up this Friday!

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 Github.com. The SUA web
team will explain the basic concept of using distributed version
control and demonstrate how they use it in their workflow.

We're ordering sandwiches from Nelson's Cheese and Deli. Please RSVP

Location: 101 Walter Library
Time: As always, food and networking from about 11:30 to noon, then
we'll start the presentation.
