    The topic was relevant and the speaker was quite engaging.

    Joe did an excellent job of explaining the differences between git and other code versioning systems. Bravo!

    Joe gave a great overview of git - and certainly made a compelling case for it over svn and other version control systems. More importantly, he explained the differences between the various version control systems and gave use cases when one would be preferable over another. Great talk!

    Sounds interesting! When will it be?

    (I could give a lightning talk on R spatial as a replacement for GIS if there were any interest.)
