When & Where
Mon, November 16, 2015 - 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM
D-Lab Convening Room

In this workshop, you'll get a brief introduction on how to manage simple or complex websites using nothing more than a text editor and Git. Using the social and through-the-web features of GitHub, this enables the possibility of collaboration with folks from anywhere on the web, while maintaining clear control of your site.

In particular, we'll be introduced to the "D-Lab Hacks" website - a relatively simple website that uses many of the features of Jekyll and GitHub pages. We'll start by making simple contributions through the GitHub web interface, introducing the basics of "markdown" and explaining why you might be more productive by "checking out" the git repository onto your local machine.
