This past fall, I taught an introductory programming class in which students managed their code with Bitbucket. I had decided the problems I was sure to encounter foisting version control on first-semester students were not worse than the problems I was sure to encounter by asking them to manage their own local workspaces and submit via clunky submission systems, and the eventual payoffs might be worth it.
As I’ve done in the past, I’d like to share with you a few of my favorite commit logs from the semester.
Hw0 solved. Finished homework #1! I hate Radians! I had some issues with getting it to work. And even when I did, the spec-checker saw it as incorrect. Oh. My. God. I did it. I solved it.

Solved hw0 I only got 7/8 for hw1, but i swear that everything i did was correct. may i have partial credit? :[ still 7/8. fixed the commas, but now i'm getting some kind of math error that i honestly have no idea how to even start solving. HW1 finished. Sorry for my incompetance. My original code kept an throwing exception for some reason. solved the HW 2. Tougher than it looked. solved HW3 Early push. Largely solved HW4. there apppears to be some small color discrepancies (rounding errors) for my crossfade and dissolve methods, but i've tried everything i can think. Sorry that it's late, will try to solve in the meantime. Kind of finished hw4, but there are some color discrepancies I can't account for. will try to fix in the meantime, this is what I have. sorry about all the technical problems we've both been having. sorry, professor. perhaps the specchecker itself is flawed? Finished. Finished half-homework 1.

Solved hw0. solved hw1 Completed hw1 Completed hw1 Solved hw2 Finished hw3 I forgot part of the assignment. It is fixed. This was a frickin hard assigment... I'm unable to think of a witty message because of how badly my brain is destroyed. Just had to add stuff to my Main class... Why make the main class when we only really need the main method? Seems awfully redundant, especially since we already broke ourselves figuring out this assignment! This is nowhere close to done. Just saving it online in case my computer decides to end it's life. Hehehe... I finally got the last method!!!! You wouldn't believe how often I had to say, "I... I just don't get it!" I disliked thumbs.db files before, but I never thought they would mess up my code so much! No more long nights of tears and brain tumors resulting from these homeworks!!!! For a month anyways...
