    Embed Git Bash into Visual Studio 

    I have started using git with my private .NET projects. It works really well, but even though I use TFS and AnkhSVN, which are both graphical tools, I do not like to work with git through Git Extensions. I use the terminal when working with git in OS X, and that’s the way I like it.

    So, being a Git Bash kinda guy in Windows, I find it annoying to have the bash in a separate window when working in Visual Studio, when IDE:s like Aptana Studio embeds it so well. After a quick search, I found some people who shared this frustration (I may exaggerate a bit) here:


    Happy joy! I’ll try it out tomorrow and write a short comment about how it went. Stay tuned.

    Linus Thorvalds replies to a guy that thinks he should have built git in C++ 

    This git-related story is probably old to all you hardcore gitters, but for me (n00b as I am) it was a brand new and hilarious read. To really appreciate it, first read up on some background information about why git was created in the first place.

    After git was released and worked really, really well, a brave soul decided to stepp up and criticize the decision to build git in C instead of C++. He was pretty full of himself, which makes Linus reply amazing.

    Happy reading!

    Getting started with git and GitHub 

    As some of my hobby projects are coming together nicely, I have been wanting to host them on GitHub instead of Google Code for quite some time. Tonight, I decided to give it a try.

    First of, I visited the Git OS X download page and downloaded the latest release of git. Second, this help page was a real treat. It contains a lot of info. However, I soon found myself entering commands into the terminal without any understanding of what I was doing.

    Since I like to be in control, this naturally did not feel that good at all. However, my hobby projects eventually ended up on GitHub and I have a real incentive to master git.
