You’ve dabbled a little in version control using Git. You know about commits and pulls and branches. You may have even tried Git to rebase something once (and remember getting kinda freaked out by the headless thing). You can follow along with the various tutorials you’ve found online. But now you’ve been asked to implement a work flow strategy for your company’s next project, and you’re not really sure how (or where) to start.
In this session you will work closely with long-time version control lover Emma Jane Westby to create the perfect work flow strategy for each of your projects. This is a process workshop designed to help you sort through the pros and cons of different types of work flows. It is not just a tutorial on how to run Git from the command line—it’s a workflow overhaul. Promise.
Emma Jane Hogbin Westby is an internationally renowned open source software advocate, technical author, and teacher. In January 2010 she was recognized by The Google Diversity Programme for her efforts in increasing female participation in software development. She is a frequent speaker at open source conferences in Canada, US, and Europe and has volunteered for several open source projects, including Drupal, The Linux Documentation Project, and Ubuntu.
In addition to her engaging conference presentations, Emma has also worked as a technical college instructor, as a curriculum developer, and has successfully run her own training business.

Emma encourages non-traditional participation in technology through craft and believes that everyone is capable of mastering the tools that surround them. To help engage new ways of participating in technology, she open-sourced one of her knitting patterns so that you can make your very own Drupal Socks (as featured in CRAFTzine).
