Repos, Riffs, & Rockstar - Using Git with Dylan Beattie of the Rockstar Programming Language
Developers of a certain age remember life before Git. Some of us remember Subversion, some of us remember CVS, and a few wise old souls remember the days when version control meant remembering to write the date on the floppy disks. But here in 2021, Git and hosted platforms like GitHub have revolutionized collaborative software development.
Dylan Beattie, creator of the Rockstar programming language, is like many developers in that he uses Git to manage his software projects. But he has also used Git to accomplish some pretty unorthodox things, from managing the codebase and website for the Rockstar programming language to creating sample projects for training workshops (he contains each module in a live branch), to creating build scripts that calculate semantic version numbers based on Git commit history.
Join Dylan for a look at some of the weird and wonderful ways we can use Git to manage codebases and projects and how we can apply Git’s ideas and patterns to other domains. Plus, you might even enjoy a musical surprise or two. 🎸
