Swinburne Hacker Within – Week 10

SHW Week 10 was Hacky Hour. We generally work to music... (BBC 6 Music).

What we worked on:

  • Building websites using GitHub Pages.
  • Transport modelling using Java, R and QGIS.
  • Setting up Git with SourceTree, rather Git for Mac - which is a bit clunky.
  • Understanding multi-stage SQL queries for a project.

What we talked about:

  • Julia programming prep for next week.
  • How Git, Mercurial, SourceTree, Git for Mac, GitHub and Bitbucket relate to each other.
  • Samara gave some advice about multi-stage SQL database queries for a CTI project and the merits of SourceTree.

This is what Hacky Hour is all about. Discovering new tools and helping each other to solve research problems.
