What is git? Git is a free and open-source distributed version control system designed to deal with everything from small to very giant initiatives with pace and efficiency. Version management systems hold these revisions straight, storing the modifications in a central repository. This permits builders to simply collaborate, as they will download a brand new model of the software, make modifications, and add content to the newest revision. A fork is a repository that has been copied from one member's account to a different member's account. Forks and branches enable a developer to make modifications without affecting the unique code. Git is the preferred model management system of most developers since it has multiple advantages over the other systems obtainable. It stores file adjustments more efficiently and ensures file integrity better. If you're looking for details on git commands, the Git Basics page has an intensive clarification on how Git works. Basic commands are "git clone " to clone a repository, "git add --all" to add files, "git commit -m "" to stage changes, and "git push -u origin" to push changes to the remote repository. GitHub is a for-profit company that gives a cloud-based Git repository hosting service. I use GitHub to store the code for this website, and I host my other website on GitHub Pages. Essentially, it makes it so much simpler for people and groups to use Git for version management and collaboration. GitHub is a useful place to backup, edit, and even serve content. If the developer wants to share the modifications, she can ship a pull request to the proprietor of the original repository. If, after reviewing the modifications, if the original proprietor wishes to pull the modifications into the repository, she will settle for the modifications and merge them with the original repository. Commits are, by default, all retained and interleaved onto the grasp project, or can be combined into a less complicated merge via commit squashing. GitHub facilitates social coding by providing a web interface to the Git code repository and administration instruments for collaboration. GitHub can be thought of as a serious social networking site for software builders. Members can observe each other, see each other's work, obtain updates for specific code and talk publicly or privately. GitHub is a Git repository internet hosting service, but it adds a lot of its personal options. Tom Preston-Werner presented the then-new Gist feature at a punk rock Ruby conference in 2008. Gist builds on the normal easy idea of a Pastebin by including model management for code snippets, easy forking, and TLS encryption for private pastes. Because every "gist" has its own Git repository, several code snippets could be contained in a single paste and they are often pushed and pulled utilizing Git. Further, forked code can be pushed again to the unique creator in the form of a patch, so Gists can become more like mini-projects. You’ve forked a repository, made an excellent revision to the project, and want it to be acknowledged by the unique developers—possibly even included in the official project/repository. The authors of the original repository can see your work, after which choose whether or not or to not accept it into the official project. Whenever you have a problem, submit a pull request, GitHub offers a perfect medium for you and the primary project’s maintainer to communicate. The developer can then safely make adjustments to that part of the code without affecting the remainder of the project. Instead, model control lets developers safely work through branching and merging. If a core developer wanted to work on one particular part of the WordPress codebase, it wouldn’t be safe or efficient to have them immediately edit the “official” supply code. Because GitHub is so intuitive to use and its model-control tools are so helpful for collaboration, nonprogrammers have additionally begun to make use of GitHub to work on doc-primarily based and multimedia tasks. And earlier this 12 months Atlassian launched Stash, a product that enables you to host non-public, on-premise Git repositories with BitBucket/GitHub-type collaboration options. The firm additionally sells developer collaboration instruments just like the bug tracker Jira and the wiki Confluence. While Git is a command-line software, GitHub supplies a Web-primarily based graphical interface. It additionally offers access management and several other collaboration options, corresponding to wikis and fundamental task administration tools for each project. Some of Git’s predecessors have a central “repository” of all the information associated with a project. When a developer makes changes, these adjustments are made directly to the central repository. With distributed version management techniques like Git, if you want to make a change to a project you copy the whole repository to your personal system. You make your changes in your native copy, then you definitely “verify” the modifications to the central server. This encourages the sharing of more granular modifications since you don’t have to connect to the server each time you make a change. GitHub’s issue monitoring characteristic might eventually compete with other similar software companies for some initiatives. These three options – fork, pull request, and merge – are what make GitHub so highly effective. Before services like GitHub, the maintainer of a repository would then have to gauge each patch, possibly dispatched by a stranger, and determine whether to merge the changes. Now, this process is streamlined through Git and GitHub interface. GitHub's Terms of Service do not require public software projects hosted on GitHub to satisfy the Open Source Definition. The phrases of service state, "By setting your repositories to be seen publicly, you agree to permit others to view and fork your repositories." "Forking" is whenever you create a brand new project-primarily based on one other project that already exists. This is an incredible function that vastly encourages the additional growth of applications and other projects. Specifically, Git is a distributed version control system, which means that the entire codebase and historical past of each repository are on the developer’s PC, which allows for simple version control and leads to a better developer experience.

Over a year in the making, I have generated over 1 million Spotify streams This is between my three artist profiles, Intersex, Jasper Camber, and Jean Jasper. I have three profiles because I have changed my artist name and I wanted to separate my instrumental music from the music with vocals. My portfolio of music is growing, and I am looking to get placement on playlists for it. When I manage to get placement, I will post about it with links here. Thanks for making these projects so big for me. I'm looking forward to what comes next. Listen to Intersex on Spotify - open.spotify.com/artist/3AoAlwjVdJAdkjr8ACsVkZ My upcoming album, "Quarantine Recordings" by Jasper Camber is scheduled for release and sent to stores. It will be released on February 27. The attached song is from the album, and it's a unique instrument that pushes the boundaries of the genre-melding piano, synthesizer, drums, and more to create an uplifting, euphoric soundscape. This album will be available on this site for free. It will also be on streaming services like Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal. I'm going to continue releasing more instrumental albums this year as the year progresses. Spotify has a playlisting dashboard which seems to be the way to get on playlists, so I'm going to use their dashboard to pitch some of the songs to playlists, and hopefully I will get some placements. It would be really good to be in instrumental playlists on Spotify, as I would get streams from the playlists and algorithmic playlists. If I'm not able to get on playlists through Spotify, I will submit my song to free playlists online and try to get placement and promote the album otherwise. I want to try to make a living from my music soon, so I have been focused on promoting it recently. I should be getting paid this month for my streams back in December, and I am going to invest the money I make back into my music and make more. It's a real challenge to make money in the industry but so far I have really enjoyed the process. I don't know if I am doing everything right and there are probably better ways I could be doing things, but soon I should be making enough to support myself. I'm committed to my art, and I feel like that's what it takes. I hope you enjoy the below sample from my upcoming album. Remember to check it out when it's in stores on Saturday, February 27!

Spotify lets you write a 500 character playlist pitch This playlist pitch is designed to to put your song in front of playlist curators. For my upcoming album, I wrote this pitch: "I wrote this song using Ableton and Native Instruments, as well as software I created called OpenChords (intersexmusic.com/openchords/). I blend piano, synthesizer, drums, strings and more to create unique, energetic and psychedelic instrumentals. I will promote this music independently with advertising, and I run two music focused sites I use to promote music, intersexmusic.com and uglek.com. I plan to promote any playlists this song is added to on my websites, valued over $30k (worthofweb.com)" I wanted to highlight how I made the music because I make music in a unique way. I use my own software. I also wanted to highlight how I promote it because that's unique too. This time around, I'm promoting my music on this website. I'll be posting more about the music up until the release date, and interacting with fans here. I'll also do this for future posts. If you have any good ideas for pitching songs to Spotify curators, please let me know in the comments.

I'm sharing another previously unreleased song with you today. This song is a part of my upcoming album, "Quarantine Recordings" by Jasper Camber and it will be on Spotify on the 27th of this month. Please give it a listen if you're interested, it's a really pleasurable track to listen to. It's an instrumental meld of various instruments I typically use that is very melodic and cinematic. I've been making a lot of music like this and I'm really excited to share it with you here and on other streaming services once it is released. I will be promoting this song as well, so you should see the stream count take off shortly after release and I'm sure this song will quickly become one of my most popular releases. I'm thinking I might try to have my single, "Mask" go gold through streaming. All I need is 75,000,000 streams, and I already have 1/150 of that only a few months after promoting it. It's quite possible I will be able to have the track go gold within the next 10 years. I am certainly interested in this, as adding a gold record to my collection would improve my image as an artist. I look forward to sharing more content from my next album as the release date nears. Please stay tuned here for more updates, and I encourage you to comment and post here as well as share the site with your friends. It's good to see I am getting a little community together on the site.

Please enjoy this song I wrote in 2019, released in December. I created this song melding piano chords I wrote in OpenChords, drums, vocals, and a synthesizer riff mainly. I think it has a really nice feel to it, and it's one of my best songs to date with vocals. Being as I now have Google AdSense on the site I am going to post more of my music here so you can enjoy it without having to use another streaming service.

I make simple bread by mixing a few ingredients and letting the dough rise in 2 steps. Below are instructions for how to make yeast bread easily. Ingredients: - 4 cups whole wheat, 2 cups white flour - 2 tablespoons salted butter - 4 tablespoons honey - 3 cups water (~110°F) - 1 tbsp yeast Directions: Mix water and yeast in a large bowl and wait until it is dissolved, stirring gently. Add whole wheat flour and place in a warm location (oven at 100 degrees Fahrenheit works) and let rise for 30 minutes. Add white flour and remaining ingredients and mix until dough forms, then place back into the oven and let the dough rise for another 30 minutes. When the dough has risen, punch it down as desired and form it into loaves. Place the loaves on a baking sheet or in bread pans and bake at 350°F 25 minutes or until brown and hollow sounding. Let the bread cool before cutting it. Enjoy this simple bread recipe! It makes great bread and it's pretty easy, with a total time of under 2 hours. I added cranberries to the batch pictured below, which is quite tasty.

You can now view random posts and random users! This will be useful for finding content and users when the site has more to it. You can click the links towards the bottom of the about page (uglek.com/about), or go to uglek.com/post/random for a random post. uglek.com/user/random takes you to a random user's profile too. I'm going to implement more fun and useful features like this in the near future. I want to make this website feature-rich so I can expect good user retention, with low bounce rates, lots of page views, and high session duration. Let me know if there are any other features you would like to see on the website! You can comment below, or send me a message. I'm happy to add anything people would be interested in using that won't interfere with the user experience of the site.

I have made some useful changes to Uglek. Now you can delete messages, with a delete button on each message in your inbox and a confirm delete page. As well as this, I changed the register page so it will automatically log you in when you sign up, no need to put in your password again. I have also made fixes to the way users are deleted, with all of their messages, posts and comments deleted whenever a user is deleted. I won't delete a lot of users, but it's important to have a good user deletion system for keeping spam off of the site. Now I can keep the site spam-free in just a few clicks, instead of having to delete each post, user, and comment. Please let me know if you see spam on the site and it isn't removed promptly, I will tend to this and remove any posts that violate our rules. It seems lately there have been some spam posts in Russian, I'm not sure what that's about, but all suspicious posts and users are removed from the site for the time being. I'm starting to build up quite a large database of posts and users, and I hope more people will join in the near future. Currently, not a lot of ads are showing on the site, but I will serve more ads within the next month or so as I post more content to the site. Yesterday, the site had 355 page views according to Google AdSense, so hopefully, these should be worth something. I think this is really good considering my previous site had nowhere near this many pageviews, despite my working hard on the site. This site is a lot more engaging though, so I see why it is more popular. Users can be more interactive and there's more to see on the site. I have even more photos from my travels I am going to share here, with captions so you know what the photos are about. These are from travels in Washington, around Europe, and in Alaska. I'll also share about my college work, as I am going back to school soon online. I'll be taking classes in computer science, English, math, and more to get a degree in the computer science field. I want to work with computers in my future, and I already have a lot of experience and projects working with computers, and I would like to get more experience. That's why I'm going to go back to school. Music is great, but I still want to get a degree and have a day job until I am ready to fully support myself from my music. I haven't been working for the past few months, and have been relying on savings and income from my music to support me, but I will be working again soon. Unfortunately, this means I will have less time to spend on this website and on making music. I'm not going to stop making music or posting here though. I am still going to build my online presence and work hard to make this a great place to enjoy new content.
