    by Matthew J McCullough and Adam Dymitruk

    Distributed version control is all the rage these days, but is it worth it? It
    has been transformative for the dozens of organizations and thousands of
    developers that I've mentored on the unique implementation called Git. But don't
    take my word for it. Discover the joy of a version control system that works for
    you, not against you, in a hands-on workshop.

    Bring a Windows, Mac, or Linux laptop and we'll install, set up, use and bend
    Git into workflows that weren't even possible with the version control systems
    of yesteryear. Be prepared to rethink how lightweight, fast, and refreshing
    source code control can be. After completing this workshop you'll be able to do
    practical work with Git for your day job or weekend OSS hobby.

    Highlights of this workshop include:

    * Creating local repositories.
    * Seeing Git as a content tracker (not just file tracker ).
    * Understanding Git network operations, including cloning, remotes, pushing &
    pulling.
    * Branching for experiments, stories, and features.
    * Merging branches, tags, and arbitrary hashes with recursive and fast-forward
    outcomes.
    * Rebasing for code change clarity, unification, and history linearity.
