Setup guide, for instructors
- Provide a printed check-off sheet, and have TAs roam around and make sure students demo the check-off sheet
- Give people a Django cheat sheet
- Asked jacobian!
- Play with the git://github.com/railsbridge-boston/railsbridge-boston.git code
Then enter: $ git branch my-branch-1
- Did you forget "git checkout"?
- TA guide should have instructions for addressing:
- If the student can't push during the Sharing section, and it is because they worked on local master, have them rename the branch
- do github in sharing
- get some TAs
