It is proven! I am nsfmc on Keybase: https://keybase.io/nsfmc/sigchain#4d42e833e483333a70aedb56a3c18ced4d58d3b5e238cb213d33a92a442985a50f
@buzz did you find a small mastodon instance/setup or are you using the main one but just dinner for one style
i don't begrudge students that feel the need to have Practical Git Experience (see also http://nsfmc.tumblr.com/post/171349063154/a-checklist-for-computer-science-undergrads ) but "github experience" is very much a weird sort of proxy for lots of other things: working in a team, managing a divergent branches of development, coordinating/reviewing work, project management, etc. those are all valuable, but curmudgeon me definitely puts many of those in the "get you an internship that does both" bucket since those process vary so much between orgs
specifically, i bet that in 2007 if a blog post came out like this where s/github/rails/g the premise would have also been mostly true and people would have mocked it by making fun of some study paid by microsoft showing high schoolers felt they were more prepared for college when they had ms office training or whatever.
this is pretty interesting, but i feel like the takeaway is that github (more than git at least), has become an industry tool that students feel they need to use productively before they enter the workforce. https://blog.github.com/2018-08-15-classroom-report-predicts-positive-student-learning-outcomes/
Of course this is what I find at the museum of natural history
@ryanlittlefield oh, it is great, no denying that. i just found myself _many_ hours into mgs: peacewalkers, ground zeroes, and tpp and was like "how did this happen?"
still pretty impressed that watching that Making Of Burial's Untrue video got me playing MGS again https://youtu.be/Et5B-zfAIIo
