Git and GitHub
I now have an account at GitHub and am starting to learn Git. Git is a free and open source, distributed version control system. Being used to Perforce, I will probably compare a lot to how Perforce works…
Yesterday I made my first (small!) contribution to another project (repository). Blackened Systems is building a website/system platform in Scala and MongoDB and I’ve decided to pitch in to learn these technologies. This morning my “pull request” was accepted and merged into “blackened-parent”. (https://github.com/blackenedsystems/blackened-parent/pull/1)
So far my impression of GitHub is that it feels like it can really make it fun to contribute to other projects!

Sick and tired of Oracles installation procedure? Try MongoDB! Unzip and run! http://www.mongodb.org/
