Learning Git the Easy Way

Posted by David  •  Jul 20th, 2015 12:23:58 pm - Subscribe | Mood: happy | Music: No music

This week in training we are learning Git.

Currently I have my Mac Pro setup with Git, and so far I have 3 files in my Git repository.

  • file1
  • file2
  • file3

    I have gone as far as to make changes to them, commit them, and read the logs on my changes. Here are some helpful tools that we used to get started.

    1. Git Immersion - GIT IMMERSION IS A GUIDED TOUR THAT WALKS THROUGH THE FUNDAMENTALS OF GIT, INSPIRED BY THE PREMISE THAT TO KNOW A THING IS TO DO IT.

    2. Code School - Try Git - Got 15 minutes and want to learn Git?

    3. Git, What is Git? - Git Basics Episode 2
    4. Git - the simple guide - just a simple guide for getting started with git. no deep shit wink.gif

    How to Configure VirtualBox with a Static IP in Linux

    Posted by David  •  Feb 18th, 2015 7:17:42 pm - Subscribe | Mood: good | Music: Study Music - Music To Make You Smarter

    In this entry I will go over how to easily configure VirtualBox and assign your linux machine a static ip.

    I am using GNU/Linux CentOs 6.5 as my disto. you may be using something like Ubuntu and if so then that is ok. The main focus here is how to allow VirtualBox to communicate through your network interface card. Once that is completed you can configure your linux machine via it's GUI or the CLI.

    Let's get started!
    1. Open VirtualBox - I am going to assume that you have your distro already installed on VirtualBox.
    2. Click on Network or right click on your distro and go to settings and choose Network.
    3. Under Adapter 1 - Checkmark to enable adapter
    4. Attached to: Choose Bridge Adapter
    5. Name: Choose how you are connected to the internet, you will see a list of adapter names. If you are connected via ethernet (cable) chose that one, or if you are connected to the internet via wifi choose that one. (I am connected via en0: Wi-Fi (Air Port)
    6. Now click on the down arrow
    7. Adapter type: Choose MT Desktop
    8. Promiscuous mode: Choose Allow VM's
    9. Click Ok
    10. Start your VM

    Now you will need to configure your network setting on your Linux VM. I won't go into detail, but my commands are like this.

    $ vim /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifconfig-eth0

    DEVICE=eth0
    BOOTPROTO=static
    IPADDR=192.168.1.88
    NETMASK=255.255.255.0
    GATEWAY=192.168.1.1
    ONBOOT=yes
    DNS1=8.8.8.8
    DNS2=8.8.4.4

    Be sure to also check your DNS at /etc/resolv.conf

    $ vim /etc/resolv.conf

    DNS1=8.8.8.8
    DNS2=8.8.4.4

    That's pretty much it. If you need info on how to assign a static IP in a Debian based system such as Ubuntu follow this documentation and search for Static IP Address Assignment.

    Advanced Renamer - Batch Rename Utility

    Posted by David  •  Feb 1st, 2015 2:45:41 pm - Subscribe | Mood: good | Music: No Music

    A small entry and thank you to a freeware project for Windows.

    I have been working on a project for a client at work for a couple of months now, and one of the tasks was to rename a large amount (634 pdf files) from one name to another.

    I have used many renaming tools before, but none like Advanced Renamer. Advanced Renamer made the task on my Windows Machine so easy, so if you are in need of a truly free renaming tool check out the Advanced Renamer project.
