SeaGL 2015 Retrospective

As well as nominally helping organize the event, I attended and spoke at SeaGL 2015 this weekend. The slides from my talk are here.

My talk drew an audience of perhaps a dozen people on Friday afternoon. I didn’t record this instance of the talk, but will probably give it at least one more time and be sure to record then.

One of the more useful tools I learned about is called myrepos. It lets you update all of the Git repositories on a machine at the same time, as well as other neat tricks like replaying actions that failed due to network problems. Its author has written a variety of other useful Git wrappers, as well.

Additionally, VCSH seems to be the “I knew somebody else wrote that already!” tool for keeping parts of a home directory in Git.
