Tech Talk: Git Legit

If you’re fighting with Git on a regular basis, you might not be using it optimally. Many Git users tend to use version control as a save point; chronologically making checkpoint commits as they go. This spreads out changes to the same areas in the code over several commits, necessitates merging and resolving conflicts, and generally makes an incomprehensible jumble of your history.

Our speaker, Pauline Vos, will introduce several best practices that will help you optimize your daily Git usage. She'll focus on atomic commits and how to use them while only minimally affecting your workflow. Using pre-recorded demos, you’ll learn how to properly and interactively rebase, fix up, reset, bisect, and more. 

This Git flow will positively affect your ability to cherry pick, drop unwanted commits, and most importantly: not spend hours resolving conflicts.
