FUNDAMENTALS at 6:15: An AngularJS Primer in 22 1/2 Minutes - Jerry Kurata

MAIN PRESENTATION at 6:45: Thinking in Git - Rob Richardson

Have you looked at Git because it was trendy, but stumbled away dazed? Git isn't your father's source control system!

We'll take your existing knowledge of TFS, SVN, or other source control systems and layer in the methodologies, tools, and communities that Git uses. What's the difference between pull and update? Is branching and merging dangerous? Can I get colored icons in Windows or Visual Studio? How do I contribute to a GitHub project?

We'll graph Git's actions in blocks and compare it to Git command results. You'll come away thinking in Git ... ready to leverage its awesome power.
