Synopses & Reviews
GitHub is much more than a collection of tools for developers. This service provides a constellation of options, making it daunting to approach, let alone use. With this book, you can get started with a minimum of hassle. Youll learn how teams can use GitHub as a space for collaboration, and discover creative use cases you might not have considered—such as using GitHub for website hosting, and GitHub Gists for sharing.
Technical enough for developers who need a desk reference for GitHub, this book is also perfect for writers, designers, and students who want to explore possibilities with the GitHub GUI.
You use GitHub all day long as a developer. Now learn how to use GitHub as a power user. Learn the ins and outs of the GitHub API using many of the most popular programming languages. Supercharge your development with command line shortcuts. Each chapter digs deep into an important technology from the GitHub ecosystem with examples to accelerate your usage of those features and programmatically automate your developer tools. Along the way, align yourself with the famed GitHub culture to streamline your developer workflow.
About the Author
Chris Dawson is an ex-employee of several notable companies (Apple, RealNetworks and Virage) and igniter of several mostly failed startups. He's also a proud native Portlander, and enjoys time with his wife and new baby, scheming for a 30 hour day. Chris notes that his ten-month-old son is full of wonder, but worries that we have lost the capacity to wonder now that Google is accessible on cell phones. He is a fan of personal growth work, no matter how painful or weird. As such, he finds he learns something new about himself every time he pens (or taps out) a blog entry.
