Git and GitHub for Students with Joe Nash
April 17, 2018
Edward and Martin talk with Joe Nash about using Git in education, self-diagnosed OCD around capitalization, and using pull requests in non-development workflows.
Joe is the student program manager at GitHub, where his work aims to help student leaders build inclusive learning communities. When not capitalising the H in GitHub, Joe can usually be found talking about the educational benefits of hackathons, or rolling d20s.

- David Newbury on Git concepts:
Git reminds me of some academic concepts. You can teach it, but It only really makes sense if you know the history of what came before and have worked at a level of complexity where you NEED it. Once you get there it changes your worldview but explaining why that’s so is SO hard.
