Git & GitHub everywhere: JFokus and around Stockholm, Sweden

15 Feb 2011

Mattias Karlsson, the ever-professional helmsman for the JFokus conference, had an at-length discussion with me about Git and his conference at the grand Devoxx show in Antwerp, Belgium this past November. We arrived at a plan to bring Git, the innovative DVCS from Linus Torvalds, in full force to Stockholm, Sweden, home of my great-great grandfather, through workshops and lectures.

It sounded like a good plan, and I received the generous support of GitHub, the awesome web-enabled half of Git to make the trip possible. Wanting to maximize the Git teaching time spent in Stockholm, Mattias and some of my Swedish colleagues helped organize 1, then 3, and now 5 Git training opportunities. The plan is now to spend nearly 5 to 10 hours per day teaching Git; I couldn’t be more excited!

If you are in the Stockholm region and want to learn why Git is not just another tool in your belt, but literally a refreshing new way to think about source control and code collaboration, then contact Mattias or I. Get in on one of the events from Monday through Friday of this week (February 14 through 18) and Git Going.

See you in Stockholm!
