Moved Coding Grace repos from BitBucket to GitHub

With a week left before BitBucket sunsets Mercurial on July 1st, I've decided to use GitHub now for Coding Grace (plus it's all in one place now).

It's sad as I'm a very big fan of Mercurial and BitBucket when they started off and was on their side as git came about and then GitHub. I've always had no problems with Mercurial, but it's mostly because I work on my own projects.

  • There's an instructor's guide that accompany this workshop.


I'll see what other workshop repos to add, but this would be a good chance to start planning workshops (online possibly) and get new workshop content on current tech folks are interested in learning and are used in the industry at the moment.

So one last farewell to BitBucket (and Mercurial), and thanks for all the fish. I knew this would happen ever since Atlassian took over.
