Developer Evangelist, StrongLoop

Website | @jakerella

Shortly after it arrived at his home in 1993, Jordan began disassembling his first computer – his mother was not happy. She breathed more easily when he moved from hardware into programming, starting with BASIC. Jordan’s experience includes startups, companies large and small, and universities, working in many languages from C++ to Natural to JavaScript. He contributes to many open source projects and participates in local user groups, barcamps, and hackathons. Jordan’s primary mission for the last 10 years has been to evangelize technology of all sorts and share what he has learned to help others grow. He currently works as a Developer Evangelist for StrongLoop, a leader in Node.js API technology from design to development to scaling and monitoring. In his down time he enjoys puzzles of all sorts and board games!

Having trouble groking Git? This session will help attendees get past Git novice and put them on their way to Git master. We'll cover branching strategies, commit amending, stashing, cherry-picking, merging vs rebasing, and much more. Okay, maybe you won't be a guru after one session, but attendees will go away knowing how to fix problems in their repos and play nicely with others. Read more.
