September 8, 2014 — This presentation talks about version control and WordPress. Specifically we’re going to look at Git, and how you can clone a git repository (like Github, BitBucket, BeanStalk, Gitlab, etc) to a live server and use your local machine to make and test changes. You’ll need to have some familiarity with SSH and a basic idea of what git is (Wikipedia is fine), but otherwise I’ll assume you’ve never used git and WordPress together and I’ll walk you through how you can do that.
August 22, 2014 — Version control is a must for any professional web developer, frontend or backend. There are many ways to setup Git, but in this talk, the aim was to cover the simplest approach possible so folks could get set up quickly.
August 4, 2014 — Git is a powerful version control tool every WordPress developer should include in their utility belt. But with great power comes great difficulty in learning how to use the darn thing!
August 2, 2014 — The Jetpack team migrated their primary development from the WordPress.org plugins repository to GitHub. This talk looks at why they made the change and how it’s affected their workflow.
December 20, 2013 — Learn how to keep your WordPress sites under version control using a workflow refined over dozens of sites. We’ll cover repository organization, what belongs (and, perhaps more importantly, what doesn’t belong), and how to make deploying updates and working with multiple environments as painless as possible.
December 10, 2013 — Once you get to the point where you feel that version control might be a useful tool things get different. Most people will point you to Git, probably the most widely used version control software around. A lot of people, though, seem to have trouble getting started with it.
Instead of throwing basic commands at you we want to invite you to explore the “Git Universe” with us in a kind of fireside chat between Kirsten, representing the web design world and Elisabeth, who gained her first computer experience with Basic many years ago.
Our focus will be on how Git works, what those strange commands really mean and how you can benefit from integrating it into your theme development work flow.
This talk aims at people working with WordPress and developing their own themes.
November 13, 2013 — This presentation presents Git techniques that encourage developers to be creative with code in a responsible manner and it explains Git commands that improve a developer’s confidence in writing creative code without the consequences of breaking existing functionality.
