Version Control Demo
Go to the Wikipedia page for the host institution, e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wellesley_College and http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wellesley_College&action=history. The presenter of this talk will explore the page more thoroughly later.
I also suggest, while you are out of the ODP presentation, showing the German law Git repository as an example of version control for things other than code.
Diff and Patch Demo
Using the files in [this repository]:
- I have [a To Do List]! But maybe it needs editing. First, I'll make a copy to edit:
cp ToDoList new_ToDoList
- Then I'll open it up and make changes to it.
- How do I view the differences between the two?
diff -u ToDoList new_ToDoList
Usually I print to the command line, then again storing the results in a diff file:
diff -u ToDoList new_ToDoList > changes.diff
