Just putting it out there: if anyone ever wants help - debugging, problem-solving, tutoring, whatever - with the Linux CLI (bash/ksh93, GNU coreutils..., vi, emacs, sed, awk) and/or git, I'll help.

I won't make you feel bad for anything you don't already know. I promise. (Nobody ever should.)

I'll reiterate every once in a while. Boosts appreciated!

Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.

I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.

@gnomon Hey Ben, a very generous offer which I'd like to accept. I need to know git for my own projects!


@gnomon I'm quite adaptable/flexible, what's available? 😀

@the_englishman well:

- there's always masto itself! Not great for longer-form comms and only so-so for interactive sessions but it definitely works.

- if you prefer trading longer messages, email works! I'm comfortable sharing my personal address via DM if you like.

- I'm on IRC! 'gnomon' on Freenode, plus some other networks; if you use that mechanism I'll come to wherever you usually idle.

- if you prefer voice comms I can call you.

- if you have other prefs I'll use those!

@gnomon I'm on keybase which I've used & seems good. I'll share profile handle through DM
