Makers Academy – Git – Day 2

A very interesting announcement was made by Siemens today. They said they were going to lay off 15,000 workers worldwide. Makers Academy have jumped at the chance to offer Siemens staff the chance of a new career. A risky and disruptive campaign but ultimately a very clever one. One that will position Makers Academy as a clear career change opportunity.

Today the main focus was on cementing how to make the Terminal (the command line of Macs) with Github and making and editing repositories, which are useful areas where you can store you code and go back to it if necessary and if something fails. It allows for a failsafe and for a platform for testing the code you have written. GitHub also allows for developers to show off and share what they have coded with the world.

I wrote the word pretty when coding today. That is not a word I yet associate with code. But maybe, if I give it a few weeks I will see beauty in code. That is how mad the next 12 weeks are going to make me or so I hear…!
