Andrew and I finished (for now) the bank example and he gave me a new project to build an application based on the BART in San Francisco. I’ll be creating object classes for Stations, Turnstyles, and Cards to begin with. We set up a Git repository for our work and I’ll be building my first draft of the objects this week.
Some notes from today…
git add . = Add all files in directory to the repository
git add [file name] = Add just that file to the directory, OR stage the most current version for the commit. (to be used if you’d like a momentary save, but are not sure if it’s the final commit version).
git commit = will commit the changes within the file to the repository. (only locally though).
git push = pushes the commits you’ve made since the last pull to the server.
git pull = pulls the most recent version from the server.
Things are speeding up quickly, but I think I’m keeping up OK. It’s been a hard transition to get back into the habit of studying and actively learning. I haven’t been in a situation that challenged me intellectually for a while, so it is an adjustment. I’m making progress though, and Andrew is really patient with me.
