Matthew McCullough will guide you from the basics through advanced usage of Git in two days of lecture, discussion, and many hands-on exercises. Since Git can be quite different than a centralized version control system, Matthew will map the terminology onto Git's more collaborative version control vocabulary and put each new term into practice with demos and comparisons.
Matthew McCullough is an energetic 15 year veteran of enterprise software development, open source education, and co-founder of Ambient Ideas, LLC, a Denver consultancy. Matthew currently is a member of the JCP, reviewer for technology publishers, author of the Presentation Patterns & Anti-Patterns book, multi-year speaker on the No Fluff Just Stuff tour, presenter at dozens of international conferences, author of three of the 10 most popular DZone RefCardz (including Git) and President of the Denver Open Source Users Group.
Git has been a primary tool in Matthew's teaching and consulting practice for several years. Matthew's helped small shops to 5,000 person companies convert from proprietary version control systems over to Git, helping them maximize the benefits and minimize efforts. The resulting productivity and collaboration boosts from development teams have been nothing short of amazing.
Matthew resides in Denver with his beautiful wife and two young daughters, who are active in nearly every outdoor activity Colorado offers
