GitHub profile

In an attempt to keep on building up my online portfolio, and to force myself to learn how to development the “right way” on OS X, I’ve created a github profile and moved my AJAX shopping list project over to git. I’m starting to get the hang of commits being local instead of remote. That feature has already come in handy to let me make commits while in an airport with no WiFi, which was cool.

You can see my profile here: Right now I have only the one repository up there, but once I get git running on Windows I might put up my WordBridge code so I have some C#/.NET stuff up too.

So far it seems like a nice idea. I like the standardized way to show off my code and projects to anyone I might want to work with/for in the future. I’m not sure if that’s the ‘right’ motivation to use a code-sharing site like this, but I don’t think it’s uncommon. It also helps to relieve a little bit of my paranoia that all of my local storage will someday be lost/destroyed, and my revision history lost.
