Pauline Vos: Git Legit
If you’re fighting with Git on a regular basis, you might not be using it optimally. This talk will lay out how to make your life easier only by changing your daily Git usage through atomic commits and other best practices. Next time you’re pulling your hair out from rebase hell, remember this talk. Many Git users tend to use Git as a save point, like in a video game; 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 just making an incomprehensible jumble of your history.
We started out as a local Meetup at the office of Way2Web but have since then grown to an online community of over 500 developers around the world.
