September 2012 Meetup

Please join us on Monday, September 10th for the next Refresh Pittsburgh meet up at Left Field Meeting Space on the North Shore.

We’ll be starting around 6:30pm. When you get to the building, walk into the larger glass doors that say “Smith Brothers Agency” and take the elevator to the 4th floor. The front doors will be on automatic lock for 7:15!

As always, please RSVP by sending an email to or just let us know you are coming on the Facebook event page so we can plan accordingly!

For September, we have a nice mix of a little code and a little design:

Let’s Git It On: Code Deployment and Backup with Git Hooks

Rob Stinogle, Manager of Web Development at American Eagle Outfitters

Rob’s presentation will show us how to setup git to automagically mirror to dropbox as a backup, and deploy to a remote server when you are ready to push.
