WORKSHOP - Git: Under The Hood

A session at Peers Conference 2015

Thursday 30th April, 2015

1:30pm to 4:30pm (EST)

This 3-hour workshop led by Ryan Irelan will start with a simple question: How many of you have used Git for your web projects?

And you will all raise your hands.

In "Git: Under the Hood" you will learn some intermediate to advanced Git skills.

We'll start off learning:

how Git stores data (the "plumbing and porcelain"),
why commit objects matter and how they're used for nearly everything in Git,
and the secret of git-stash.

After learning some Git internals we will then move into practical examples and tools you can use immediately. You will learn:

intermediate to advanced usage of important workflow tools and commands (the Git verbs),
how to find whatever you want about the history of a repository,
and, the commands and information you need to get out of a jam and solve your Git problems.

The workshop will end with a group-led Q&A session so we can share information and experience with each other.

The course will include:

A copy of the slides used in the course (PDF)
Access to any demonstrated Git repositories (Github)
Written examples and explantations (PDF/HTML)
