I have been quite happy with the 11ty site I built for my Irish diversity in tech groups listings especially the Irish tech events listings I've been curating.
It all boils down to updating YAML files, much less work than before! ☺️
2 months since and apart from last month's first time changing to new month listings with tiny fixes to be made, this month's change to April went without a hitch! 🎉
And it's all on github.
Diversity in Tech in Ireland
I've been maintaining a list of Diversity in Tech groups around the island of Ireland since 2017, and I think it's about the right time to get more of the community involved (and a chance for me to try a new framework out).
This means I can crowdsource any updates to the list of diversity in tech groups in Ireland and Northern Ireland. Folks can send in PRs, to do that, they will need to update the "diversityGroups.yaml" in src/_data. If you don't want to do that, you can create an issue or drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Irish hosted events
Also on my TODO list is write something to pull Irish hosted events
- where I can curate them
- remove duplicates
- remove non-techie events
- and this one is more custom for me, output HTML code that I can paste into my Mailchimp for my…
I know github had planned to rename master to main and the copy of the repo I had still had 'master' as the branch name.
So, I decided to rename my repos branch also, and this handy page helped with clear steps and I had no problems at all.
~/s/diversity-in-tech (master)> git branch -m master main ~/s/diversity-in-tech (main)> git branch * main ~/s/diversity-in-tech (main)> git push -u origin main Total 0 (delta 0), reused 0 (delta 0) remote: remote: Create a pull request for 'main' on GitHub by visiting: remote: https://github.com/whykay/diversity-in-tech-ireland/pull/new/main remote: To github.com:whykay/diversity-in-tech-ireland.git * [new branch] main -> main Branch 'main' set up to track remote branch 'main' from 'origin'. ~/s/diversity-in-tech (main)> git symbolic-ref refs/remotes/origin/HEAD refs/remotes/origin/main ~/s/diversity-in-tech (main)> git branch -a * main remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/main remotes/origin/main remotes/origin/master
Followed his step 4 and to change default branch to ‘main’ on GitHub site
~/s/diversity-in-tech (main)> git push origin --delete master To github.com:whykay/diversity-in-tech-ireland.git - [deleted] master ~/s/diversity-in-tech (main)> git branch -a * main remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/main remotes/origin/main
And now my main branch is now called "main"! 🙌
