dd-wrt and git as Aspirational Projects

Aspirational Projects: Those projects we aspire to complete and yet often never really find time to actually work at completing.

Two of mine, installing dd-wrt on a router as a hack, and installing git for version control have been around for some time.

I completed dd-wrt yesterday and have no idea why I put this one off, I already love what I can do and what I have learned with this project.

Getting started with git Iam going to leave for some other time and remove it from my todo list of items to consider.

Maybe cleaning up aspirational project lists is a good way to go.  Either way, I feel better about a cleaner Instapaper list.

Git in One Hour

This event was watched and reviewed by one of my favorite techies and it was their opinion that this was a useful webcast instead of the more pedantic variety which appear more like a reference manual to a product than a hands-on “howto” type.  Highly recommended!

Date: This event took place live on August 20 2009
Presented by: Scott Chacon
Duration: Approximately 60 minutes.

In this webcast, Git evangelist Scott Chacon covers the basics of the Git source control system. He’ll introduce the audience to Git basics: staging and committing snapshots, viewing the commit log, pushing to and pulling from servers, and creating, switching between, and merging branches.  Finally he’ll quickly cover a few more advanced features – code annotation, advanced log options and possibly more, time permitting.
