Advanced Git tutorial: Not your average VCS.

A session at Open Source Bridge 2009

Wednesday 17th June, 2009

3:50pm to 5:35pm (PST)

Git is an open source, distributed version control system used to track many different projects. You can use it to manage anything from a personal notes directory to a multi-programmer project.

This tutorial provides a short walk through of basic git commands and the Git philosophy to project management. Then we'll dive into an exploration of the more advanced and "dangerous" Git commands. Watch as we rewrite our repository history, track bugs down to a specific commit, and untangle commits into an LKML-worthy patchset.
