An Amature's Experience with github

I have a few--not great--projects I threw on github, but what is most surprising to me is which one generates interest. Brief description after the jump break.

First, I like github. It took me a little while to get the command lines down, but once I did I have to admit the over all experience is enjoyable. Seeing line by line changes is a wonderful thing, and someday I hope to work collaboratively on a project. As a former IT guy for a software development company, most of my experiences with revision control has not been fun (it might have had something to do with being an all .NET development place--couldn't say I had no development experience at the time).

Some quick advice for anyone who wants to learn git, go to That could have saved me at least 6 hours--I'm a slow learner. It could save a real developer at least 30 minutes.
