* Pierre's GIT Presentation

A note from the author: this presentation doesn't make much sense unless I'm there to give it to you, so please don't hesitate to contact me: I give it to small groups about 3 times per year, but I'll give it to any individual who wants it at any time.

An Important Reminder:

It is the responsibility of workstation and notebook users to ensure that regular backups are made of any important data located on their workstations or notebooks.

Obtaining Assistance

If you have questions, require access to resources or would like assistance in planning, assessing or implementing a backup plan we encouraged you to submit a ticket via the GLPI ticketing system outlining your needs and the ACE Labs IT team will be happy to assist you.
