Source Control for IT Pros with Nicole Stevens

RunAs Radio

Everyone needs source control! Richard chats with Nicole Stevens about what IT Pros need to know around source control. Normally the purview of developers, source control is useful anywhere you have text that needs to be stored, versioned, and protected. Nicole talks about how you can use GitHub in a private repository to manage your own scripts - keep track of the changes you make over time, be able to go back to old versions, and so on. And when the whole team gets involved, it gets even more interesting!

SHOW NOTESINTRODUCING NICOLE STEVENS! Since I left my public service career and ventured into entrepreneurship I have become an astute observer of things.  Now that I no longer have a public service type job with tons of security built into it, I live in the world of providing real value and performance in order to continue receiving a paycheck.  It is this new reality that has caused me to really start looking at people who succeed and take measure of what makes them stand apart. It is these observations that really make this time of year fun for me.  As you know, I am privileged to be able to interview all of the FFA's American Star Finalists every year.  I usually do pretty good and am able to interview almost all of them.  These students are the best of the best, and I always find myself surprised hearing their stories and realizing just how much they have done to reach this level.Our guest today is one of those students.  Nicole Stevens is one of the four finalists for the title of American Star in Agriscience Research.  Now there are a lot of different types of research projects out there.  Some are complex and some are simple.  They all count towards a supervised agricultural experience.  In this episode, Nicole will even tell you about one of her very first research projects and just how simple that it was.By the time we finish our interview with Nicole she will have told you that she has conducted 22 research projects over the past 10 years in the FFA.  That is more than 2 per year in addition to everything else she had been doing.  When I asked her how she got all of this done she replied that sometimes she had to sacrifice sleep to make it happen.Imagine being so devoted to researching something that you sacrificed sleep to find out the answers.  It is work ethic like this that sets American Star Finalists and National Proficiency Winners apart.  If you ever want to know just how highly successful people achieve those results, look no further than the 16 students nominated for this prestigious award over four categories every year!SUPERVISED AGRICULTURAL EXPERIENCE: Agriscience ResearchHIGH SCHOOL: Yukon High School; Yukon, OklahomaMASCOT: MillersFFA ADVISOR: Scott StevensCONTACT INFORMATION FOR NICOLE STEVENS:Click on the picture below to be taken to the Yukon High School Website:Nicole's FFA Advisor's Email Address: scott.stevens@yukonps.comYukon High School Telephone Number: (405) 354-2587FFA LINKS:National FFA OrganizationSupervised Agricultural Experiences (SAE's)Support FFA Donate to FFA - One way that FFA students are able to start small businesses is through an FFA grant of $1,000.  In 2014, 141 FFA students received these grants.  With your donations, more students can get this head start - pay it forward.REASONS TO DONATE TO FFA: Only 2% of Americans grow and raise most of the food and livestock consumed by the other 98% as well as the rest of the world.  FFA is providing the needed education, training and resources to Americans that will carry that torch forward and insure that America continues to have inexpensive, quality food. Rural Communities will rely on entrepreneurship in the future for population growth and job creation.  The FFA is a major catalyst to that entrepreneurial growth. Farmers, ranchers and those working in agriculture give the rest of America incredible amounts of freedom because the search for food is as simple as going to the grocery store:“The future of American agriculture depends on the involvement and investment in America’s youth, In order to prepare for the population of tomorrow, we need to encourage America’s youth today, and show that careers in agriculture are profitable, rewarding, and vital.”.U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, Sonny PerdueWhere Off-Farm Income And Matt Brechwald Can Be Heard:Member Of The National Association Of Farm Broadcasters
