GitHub and Cheat sheets

Getting comfortable with GitHub branches, publishing using GitHub Desktop app and Cygwin Server Services with Putty. The first week with GitHub was not easy as I do not use the Linux shell for often and the github “origin” keyword required little getting use to.

As all things are not created equal, I am learning to create some cheat sheets for softwares and applications. It is not humanly possible to remember all things all the time and I am starting to notice my limitations in recalling at moment’s notice specific commands, shortcuts or steps in any given project.

For the super blessed one search online may result in instant answer, but for people like me the search result (a.k.a Artificial Intelligence) seems to play games with mind. It never returns the same results over time and it takes too much of the precious time when trying to solve a problem within minutes, so I can move on to the next task. On the other hand scanning a book for solution or waiting for the peers to reply to the question seems endless hours.

On many occasions the cheat sheet would not solve the problem but it can surely reduce the time from searching online or waiting on peers; as time is of the essence when facing multiple tasks that are needed to be completed.

The list below should be customized to your preference as it is the list that has worked for me.

  1. Microsoft Excel
  2. Google Drive – Spreadsheet
  3. Microsoft OneNote
  4. Notepad text files
