Git from the Bits Up - Presented by Tim Berglund
So you've gotten a handle on Git and know how to use it for everyday development tasks like committing code and pushing and pulling changes with the rest of the team. But do you really know how it works under the covers? In this talk, we'll commit a file to a brand new repository without ever touching the git add or git commit commands, and in the process learn some critical Git internals that every power user should know.
We'll also take a look at some advanced history and undo commands like reflog and reset, and how to rewrite past mistakes with interactive rebase. Bring your questions and Git challenges for 90 minutes of advanced Git fun!
Who Should Attend:
This session will appeal to people who want to learn more about Git. They will learn some Git internals that will help them in their everyday Git usage.
Any developer or designer will benefit, but especially devs who already know a little bit of Git.
