  • Picking up where we left off in June (creating Linux and Windows Git servers) we will be:
    --  Implementing a simple ASP.NET team project with Visual Studio 2013
    --  Using the Repositories we created in June
    --  Using of most of the Git commands including fetch / pull / merge / rebase / stash / squash / rebase interactive
    --  Implementing actual workflow during the project
    --  Interaction between all of us members of the team
    --  We will also work with GitLab/GitHub

    Here is some homework (stuff to accomplish) for everyone to do prior to arriving for July's session:
    --  Bring your laptop and have Visual Studio 2013 installed (hopefully everyone will have that version in common)
    --  Install the Git native software on your DEV laptop (see Video #3 that is posted on the Ray Harris's GitLab site)
    --  Using your Git Bash shell, create your SSH private/public key file pair (see Video #3 that is posted in the GitLab project), and email your public key file to Ray Harris
    --  Create your own free account on, and provide your account username to Ray Harris (so you can be added to the public KCCM's public REPO)
    --  Create your own free account on, and provide your account username to Ray Harris (so you can be added to the public KCCM's public REPO)
