& so I was sitting and pondering upon which revision control system I should deploy for an ongoing project, seeing that I’ll be needing someone to work on my application UI design in the near future, when my good friend Sola Ajayi, an avid & well matured developer swayed me towards Git. After much persuasion on the benefits, I decided to give it a go, and I’m certainly glad I did.
So what is Git?
Git is a free & open source, distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency.
Git is used for version control of files, much like tools such as Mercurial, Bazaar, Subversion, CVS, Perforce, and Team Foundation Server.
I have a shared dedicated hosting plan with Godaddy.com, while my actual development files are local on my system. I needed a scenario where once i’m done with a web-dev session, I would only upload files I modified and keep track of those changes rather than the whole project.

And so I was busy working on a web-dev project when I received a phone call from a friend asking if I had heard of CCHub [Co-Creation Hub], interesting conversation as it were because some way some how I’m usually privileged to hear of such initiatives before they launch out considering the beautiful idea behind it.
Anyway, a few minutes later I was already bubbling with excitement as I strolled down to their “Hub” location which wasn’t to far off. And why was i excited you ask? because there’s no initiative in Nigeria today [to the best of my knowledge] that offers such a platform for interaction to promote social development & change using technology as it’s foundation!
CcHUB is Nigeria’s first open living lab and pre-incubation space being designed to be a multi-functional, multi-purpose space where work to catalyze creative social tech ventures take place. The HUB will be a place for technologists, social entrepreneurs, government, tech companies, impact investors and enthusiasts in and around Lagos to co-create new solutions to the many social problems in Nigeria.
The CCHub aims at accelerating growth for tech start-up’s which have products or ideas that act as a catalyst for social change in Nigeria. They will be the cushing that will support these start-up’s through an array of business support resources and services.
