Quick tip: Github + Dropbox = Awesome!

Just figured this out myself. As I’m trying to get both of my machines up and running with all of the latest goodies. Git, gitHub and QT have been installed. Of course, I’m using these for the course project in one of my courses. So, I simply commit, save and move to the next machine. Qt notices the changes, and updates, and git keeps it real online. 

QT of course, does a little bit of the syncing as well. Not quite sure what it is, since I still have to commit through gitHub. I’ve more or less streamlined this process. My main machine is on a treadmill desk, and then I have my mac book air, which I use for notes and coding. 64 gb doesn’t give you room for much else. So, working with what I’ve got, and dropbox/git are making it a little easier. 

Personally, I prefer the gitHub software for the mac, it’s more intuitive. Though, once you realize what’s going on with the windows version, not too bad. Had a little issue syncing at first… then I realized it’s not just about putting commands on the terminal. Seems faster than clicking, but I think I’ll stick to the app for the quick updates. Loving version control so far!
