Version Control: Command-line Git Installation

Be sure to install Git version 2.30.0 or higher.

MacOS/OS X Installation

A lot of developer technologies require XCode’s command-line tools, but they are useful in their own right. To install them, you’ll need to pull up the Terminal app on your Mac. The easiest way to do this is through Spotlight Search: click the magnifying glass in the upper right-hand corner of your Mac, and start typing Terminal; click the result that appears labeled as an Application.

You’ll have a small white window that pops up, with a line that most likely has the name of your computer followed by a colon, tilde, and dollar-sign, e.g., janes-mac:~ $. There’ll also be a cursor, which may or may not blink.

Script for running tests before a Git Commit
#! /usr/bin/env sh
# This basic file was cribbed liberally from the post at
# but the Git commands have been updated for current best practices.
# Sanity checker. Alerts to STDOUT that the pre-commit hook is about to run.
# (uncomment to use)
# echo "Running the pre-commit hook..."
# Stash any unstaged changes so that they don't interefere with the test suite

Workshop MW.08: Foundations in Programming (CCCC 2017)



This is the general order of business for the morning. We'll start with basic values in JavaScript, and how they are stored in variables. We'll also look at more complex ways of storing values before turning to basic operators. With that in hand, we'll be able to work our way up to statements and functions, which are the core building-blocks to programming. All of this is just a plan. We can move in different directions based on particpant interest.

We'll use the following technology:
