Git Workshop

After Work Seminar

FOOD: Yes

Fear not!

Close to the holidays a Git expert is coming to teach us to not to be afraid of our version control system.

Git is a powerful tool, but few people take advantage of all its capabilities, and much of its functionality can feel like an inscrutable black box.In this hands-on workshop, I’ll work through various Git commands and talk about more advanced workflow practices, including merge options, searching through commits, and rewriting repository history. I’ll talk about the contents of the .git folder, the data structures constructed from those files, and the abstractions Git applies on top of those data structures. We’ll utilize visualizations to watch what happens in the repository when you perform certain Git operations, with the goal of unraveling those abstractions and demystifying what Git’s actually doing under the hood.

Finally, we’ll explore a variety of tools at your disposal that you can use when you get stuck; learn how to get back to a known good state and find lost commits with ease.

Prerequisites

Participants should have a basic understanding of Git and be comfortable with some common operations: staging changes, creating commits, creating new branches, and merging branches into other branches. Participants should bring a laptop with Git v2.6.0 or higher installed and working.

Speaker

Katrina is a software engineer at GitHub, where she works on Atom, GitHub’s free and open source text editor. Formerly a medical device engineer, Katrina found her passion in building software — specifically building awesome software to better facilitate building more awesome software. She’s a lover of elegant abstractions, all things meta, and tools and tricks that improve the development process. When Katrina’s not using Atom to hack on Atom, she’s often working to empower other engineers through teaching, mentoring, or organizing events for Bay Area women in tech.
