Creating a centralized git workflow

This weekend, I made an interesting (re)discovery. I was digging though some old emails and found an email with details about how an acquaintance and I were creating a centralized git workflow. I figured out how to keep my project in sync with yours. I use git on the command-line, but I imagine it should… Continue Reading →

Using the ‘–‘ argument with git

If you add ‘–‘ to your git command, git will know not to process anything after the double hyphen as a command-line argument. This was useful to know for the situation I just found myself in. I had accidentally cloned a repo into a directory called “–force”. I had placed the –force argument in the… Continue Reading →

Squashing commits in git

My first open source contribution was just accepted! (Technically, it’s my 2nd contribution, but 1st accepted one!) It was a very minor change, just an update to the user’s profile page on GitLab. Nevertheless, it’s a great feeling, knowing that I can directly improve a¬†great product that I actually use. And I gained a bit… Continue Reading →

I’ve pushed quite a few branches to some remote repos as a means of transporting projects to/from home/work. As a result there are quite a few useless branches in most… Continue Reading →

Lost Java

Somehow, I broke my Fedora installation this weekend. After having a great time getting started on my Gravatar project¬†this past Saturday, I settled in for some Labor Day programming yesterday. However, as soon as I tried to open Eclipse, I was given an error message telling me that the command ‘java’ was not in the… Continue Reading →

Current status of my tech stack

Still climbing the very steep learning curve of being a web application developer and admin. I have dropped CodeIgniter, in favor of CakePHP. A friend of mine recommended this PHP framework, so I’m going forward with it. I have completed the first tutorial and have a page that will spit out the user data for… Continue Reading →

Switching gears

I started a new job this week. It is with a startup company here in Greenville, SC called Green Cloud Technologies. I am super-excited to be here and away from that crap company Windstream! I’ve had a few changes in my career growth as a result of this job change. First, they didn’t have any… Continue Reading →
