Galvanizing With Git in Denver

Tonight my buddy and co-worker Ross Nordstrom and I went up to Denver for an “All Things Cloud” meetup. Github’s very own Tim Berglund came to speak to the group about git version control and how Github can improve workflows. I already knew most of the technical content that he presented (it was aimed at a diverse group of various technical levels), but I still enjoyed listening to Tim speak, and even learned a few things as well. The talk was hosted at Galvanize, a local workspace and meetup spot in downtown Denver. It was an interesting space, and I’m sure Kira would have really liked the design.

An interesting git alias that we learned allows quick and beautiful command line viewing of the git log.

The Command: $ git lol

How to setup: $ git config --global --add "log --graph --decorate --color --pretty=oneline --abbrev-commit --all"

This config will yield output that looks like this:

And last but not least, Ross and I realized that we were only 2 blocks away from Pint’s Pub (warning, the website plays traditional pub music, which you can’t turn off.), one of our favorite pubs around. We walked over to visit before we left. I’ll admit, that the main reason that we love it is because it has an absurd collection of single-malt scotch’s to try.

Pictured below is the case which holds Pint’s rare single malts, many of these bottles are 30+ years old, and cost more than $1,000 per glass.
