A fantastic opportunity to learn Git

Sometimes it takes planning and persistence for things to come together, but then when it happens you end up with great opportunities. An awesome example is the Git and GitHub workshop that is going to happen in Victoria, BC on the 29th of August 2012. The well known speaker, author, trainer and VP of Training at GitHub Matthew McCullough is coming to town to present at a joint event of the Vancouver Island Java User Group VIJUG and the Google Developer Group Victoria BC on the 30th of August. For those interested in more than just a short presentation we are hosting a full day training course of incredible value to anybody from Git beginner to long-time GitHub user.

In the interest of being able to organize a correctly sized venue and to ensure that we do not have to turn you away I would ask you all to find out more about the event on the registration page and book as soon as possible.

As the local organizer and contact person, feel free to contact me for more detail. Especially also if you are interested in sponsoring the event venue or attendee lunch/coffee!

I look forward to hear from you and see you there

  1. I’m a intermediate-level Git user who uses Github fairly often. Would it be possible to find out what topics will be covered so that people in my position can assess if the session is worth the $200 price tag?


  2. What further details beyond what is on the registration link do you need? There is lots there..

  3. If you really think there is no value in it for you – don’t attend. I am certain that you could learn a lot in the class and that 100$ is a steal for a full day class with Matthew.Beyond that it will also be very valuable for networking and meeting other local geeks and github users. But it is all up to you.
