Where: MADLab at Gerstein Science Information Centre
When: Thursday, August 23, 6:10-7 pm
Instructor: @QuLogic
What to bring: a laptop with Git installed (see instructions below). Optional: make an account on GitHub.

Installing Git

Installation instructions for Git can be found on the Git download site

  • On Windows: Download the .exe file from this
    link and run it.
  • On Mac: To use the graphical Git installer, download from this
    SourceForge link
  • On Linux: Use your respective package manager (for example, if you
    use Ubuntu or Debian, run this code: sudo apt-get install git)

Watch: This event will be streamed live. If you have questions during the live stream (or just want to chat with us), please ask in our Gitter lobby and we will forward your questions to the instructor! (Although we aim to live stream each event, there are sometimes technical difficulties so it's best to attend in person if you can.)

Directions: MADLab is located in Gerstein Science Information Centre, Room B112 at the south end of the first lower level. Once you go through the main entrance of Gerstein, take a right turn down a corridor (across from the admin desk or just past the reading room), then take the stairs down and follow the signs to MADLab, the door should be open 10-15 minutes before the lesson.
