Learning Git in Reverse: A Backwards Introduction to the Information Manager From Hell

A session at Boise Code Camp 2016

Saturday 19th March, 2016

3:05pm to 4:20pm (MST)

Session Level: 100

Learning Git in Reverse will teach the basics of Git by touring through the internals of Git. We will walk from the depths of the object store, studying the various objects of Git; through the plumbing commands, the internal commands Git itself uses to do what we want; and arive at the poreclain commands that allow us to store and version code successfully.

This talk is meant to be an introductory course on the basics of Git, but will certainly include some advanced discussions on Git internals.
