Blog Entry for Week Ending February 24

Learning Git and starting team project.

There was another reading for this week, "Git" by Susan Potter. It was about centralized and distributed version control system and the differences between the two.  The main difference was centralized keeps the latest version in one place that everyone can access verses distributed allows for local versions and people can work offline in their own space. It was a general consensus in the class that distributed was more valued because of its flexibility.

We didn't have any specific training to do with Plone this week. Instead we familiarized ourselves with Git and the work flow of a project. My group is planning on creating a graph feature for our project. We plan to use a form to take data and then translate it to a graph. For lab in our team groups we used Git to learn how to create a new project as well as to push, pull and merge to it. We had some complications with using Git through the terminal but using Google and someone in our team having prior Git knowledge we were able to overcome the problems.

Ending the week as a class we were left with the tasks of preparing a standup meeting where we will discuss what we have done for the week and plan to do in the future. For the class not only are we starting our team projects, we also need to plan for our individual projects. For next week I will look at for an individual project for the class. I also want to talk with my group more for how to start our project and research what we will need to know to complete it.
