Today I’m giving a tiny informal talk to co-workers about ruby. You can find the source for my slides on github.
We’ve started up doing Tuesday Tech Talks at work and I got to go first by talking about git. We use git to store all of the code I work with. For the people working directly with me this was mostly review. The rest of the co-workers span the gammit on knowledge. For this reason I tried to go pretty low level in some cases, and also span a huge list of topics. My main goal is that sometime in the future, when they are using git, they will think of one part of my presentation and look up the needed info to implement or incorporate that idea into their work. Whether it’s as simple as rebasing to clean up their code before commiting it to a dev branch, or adding the git branch name to their prompt.
