Git's Guts

These days almost all developers use Git on a daily basis. Many of us learnt a few relevant commands by rote, but a deep understanding of what it is actually doing seems to be a rarity. Git’s man pages frequently lie about what is really going on, and the majority of third-party documentation is similarly misleading.

This isn’t a "how to" talk on Git. I won’t give you a list of commands to learn. There won’t be any advice on merging vs. rebasing, or on continuous integration. The goal of this talk is to give a clear, factual insight into what the various Git commands actually do, and what is actually being stored in the commit graph. Afterwards, you may be able to make sense of a Git problem more easily, but I’ll be focusing on understanding the tool, not on the best way to use it.

Who are you?

Definitely some really appreciated insights into the workings. I felt it was more of walk through of commands than I was expecting but I will also admit I don't have any advice on how to mitigate that.

Sam spoke clearly, explained concepts well, and delivered the talk well with a great sense of humour. You wouldn't believe that this was Sam's first conference talk!
