WordCamp San Diego 2012

I’m happy & proud to get the opportunity to speak at WordCamp San Diego on March 24th 2012. The event sold out in a mere 12 hours, so I can’t even tell you to come check it out, unless you already have a ticket! But, the weekend should be a huge blast🙂

The talk I am giving is about using the version control system Git; best practices, case studies and various workflows when using it with WordPress. In the spirit of open-source and of git, I am doing a bit of an experiment with it. The whole talk is getting prepared on GitHub. That means both the outline and the slides are available there as I prepare them. The idea is that you (everyone/anyone) will collaborate by asking questions you want answered ahead of time, bringing suggestions, corrections and amendments along the way.

Here’s how you can collaborate:

  • Take a look at the github repository
  • Take a look at the work-in-progress completed slides — these were continuously updated/rebuilt each time I updated them, and since they are just an HTML page, you can revisit them anytime you want.
  • Open an issue on github for any issues, questions, comments, recommendations, etc…
  • Specifically, I want to know what kind of experience you’ve had with Git (versioning plugins, themes, private client sites, working with core, etc.), what challenges you’ve faced (and how did you overcome them), what workflows do you have, what questions using git do you have, etc.
  • Fork the repository and submit a pull request if you want a specific change incorporated
  • If you’re uncomfortable using git/github, feel free to comment on this post or send me an email at info@jkudish.com (or via the contact form on this site) instead

That’s the idea, no idea if it will work or not. I think the presentation can be that much better with some feedback from the community, but if not, I promise not to disappoint you (too much) either way.

Let me know your thoughts!
