Planning Meetings

Thursday Dec 12, 2013

  • Time 14:00, at EMBL
  • Informal meeting between Jon & Holger
  • Brief outline of things to do:
  • Try to repeat/followup on HUB7: using git for collaborative work
  • This time, it might be better to run through a "scripted workflow" using 3-6 Participants (really Organizers) to show different features of git/workflow
    • conflicts
    • branches
    • using the GUI as well as commandline?
  • Use one or more RaspberryPi(s) to create connectivity
    • possibly use multiple individual shares for individual groups to avoid problems?
  • Use USB sticks as fallback
  • Test the setup/script in January (doodle?)
  • Provide git cheatsheet
