Git from the Bits Up - Tim Berglund

Git from the Bits Up - Tim Berglund

Join GitHub trainer and evangelist Tim Berglund for a look at Git, from the bits up. Tim is going to strip back and lay bare Git's internal model. Not strictly DDD of course, but a chance for all to dig deep into an example of a popular, well-designed domain model. This talk is a more advanced look at "weird internals stuff" and obscure commands that will reveal a sort of internal API that is there for you to use and help expose you to certain intrinsic software design insights that can be had from looking at Git at this level. "If you want to be that person on the team that's like the Git're gonna need to know this stuff." - Tim Berglund


6:30pm - 7pm Food & drink (provided) and conversation - a big thanks to GitHub for sponsoring the catering!
7pm - Announcements 
7:05pm - Git from the Bits Up presentation - Tim Berglund
~8:30pm - Close (join us for drinks afterwards, weather permitting)

    Tim, I did learn a lot even though I am fairly new to Git. Thanks for the pointers

    I really like these "from the ground up" types of presentations, and this one was very well done. Thank you Tim!

    The topic was interesting. It's great to see Tim. His presentations are (always) engaging and informative.

    It lived down to its billing, as in "under the hood." I liked it. We use Git at Edgewave, particularly heavy on submodules, which have wrestled us into submission. I'm compelled to learn more about GitHub.
