git is a powerful distributed version control system that's becoming an increasingly popular choice for managing changes to your code. In this talk, we'll build from the ground up and give you all the tools you'll need to understand how git works, and how to use it effectively. Using real-world code samples, we'll show you exactly how git works and provide a solid mental model for what's going on under the hood. If you've been thinking about Git lately but haven't delved very deep, or were put off by your initial exploration, this talk is for you.
To get the most out of this talk, you should already be familiar with at least one version control system (like TFS, Subversion, or Mercurial), but that isn't strictly required.
