If you're an experienced techie and you want to work at Google, there are many cloud opportunities available now, both in Kitchener-Waterloo and worldwide. I'm happy to refer you in confidence for any of these jobs if they interest you. (See google.com/jobs for the list by location.) But first read my article on tips for experienced engineers.

Want to learn about Git? Here's a great free resource...

I'm exploring ebook writing at the moment and since ebooks are really just HTML & CSS files it makes a lot of sense to use a source control system to track the changes to those files. After doing some research, I decided that Git would be the best choice because I could use it to manage a local directory that was easily cloned into cloud storage (DropBox, Google Drive) for backup and remote access purposes. I've used git before, but it's been a while and I can't say I took the time to learn about its proper use before. Luckily, the Git project has a great book -- Pro Git -- available online for free that explains it all in detail. Start here if you want to learn about Git!

EDIT: After doing some more research, it looks like people are recommending that you use a service like BitBucket to store private repositories and to not use DropBox in particular because it can lose files and there are interesting issues that arise with conflicts.... seems like good advice!

It's amazing how something so beautiful can be so dangerous. Tree limbs are falling everywhere... Nothing we can do until it melts.
