I am super excited to announce that I will be speaking at 360iDev this September. You can see the schedule here. This is going to be an awesome conference, and I'm stoked to be a part of it. Everyone who attends 360iDev raves about it so, if you can attend, don't miss it!

My talk is entitled, “Power Your Workflow With Git.” Here is an excerpt from the description:

Xcode 4 finally includes much requested support for Git. Git is a free, distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency. This makes it perfect for indie developers.

While Git has been around for a while, the tools and workflows are only now maturing. Now is the time to examine how you can benefit from using it.

This talk will be practical. We will start by briefly introducing Git, the core concepts of a distributed version control system and why it might be preferable over Subversion.

After peeking under the hood, we will focus on how to use it effectively in iOS development. Git does not enforce any given workflow, so we'll discuss best practices, the pedantically “perfect” workflow and then scale it back for the indie developer and small teams. We'll run through the common use cases, tasks and configurations, survey several of the tools and services available and, of course, get down and dirty on the command line.

You can expect this talk to be packed with content. Even if you've kicked the tires with Git already, you will most likely learn a few tips along the way.
