Start learning Git

Git has been around for quite a bit now. Every programmer and company knows the value of having a distributed Version control system such as GIT over centralised repositories such as SVN.

If you're a developer, it is highly recommended to learn GIT today because it will be a prerequisite to getting a job as a software developer soon. You need not worry though. It is really easy to learn and master GIT using command line as well as the GUI.

The first thing you need to do is install GIT. Here are the download links.

You'll see the following screen. Choose according to whatever Operating system you're running and it will download automatically. If it does not download, click on the version you want to download. Both 32bit and 64bit versions are listed.

Once done with download, GitBash will open automatically. This is a command prompt to use the Git commands which make it very easy to update your files on the GitHub repository. You can also use the GUI. Just search in apps and you'll find it in the apps as well.


Where to learn?
As a start watch this youTube Video by Corey Schafer. It will get you going. It is the intro to command line. It is very useful and is built using the official Git book by Scott Chacon.

Need a Book?

For those of you who like to read and learn from books, here is the link to the Second Edition of the book by Scott Chacon. It's called "ProGit" and is the best source out there to learn Git

Thinking Of Wireless Power

Just Watched something interesting that destroys every obstacle in its way and never stops.
Might be was running on some inbound source that fueled it and made it cause vast destruction without coming to halt.

Seeing this had a perception that maybe if something is not having its own power source and relies on power from its some sort of base built far away will be quite cool enough.

This lead me to searching the internet of "Wireless Power Source".

Windows 10....Everything around Installation

I also upgraded to windows 10 single language on my lenovo z5070 ideapad laptop. Firstly it was around 2713.8 MB. I downloaded it using cellular network. I was actually not in a mood to upgrade but windows 10 downloaded itself in background. Firstly i checked the internet usage and it was very fast and to my surprise window was downloaded around 25%. Then i decide to download it. When i recharged again I downloaded 50%. So my point is that it downloaded in intervals. Afterthe complete download friday the 7th august. It popped up and said to upgrade. I followed the onscreen steps and it started installing.

During installation process. there was a black screen with boldly written UPGRADING TO WINDOWS 10, followed by Your computer will restart several times so sit back and relax. It was a combination of three steps that highlighted one by one at the bottom of screen with a round ring showing the status as the Percentage in the center of screen. The first was copying files. The second was Installing Drivers etc. and the third was configuring settings.
