The Git Parable
Recorded at:

by Johan Herland on Aug 03, 2013 |

Johan Herland explains how Git does branching and merging in a distributed (and partially disconnected) environment, how to rewrite a commit history, and why staging is useful.


Johan Herland is a software developer at Cisco in Oslo, Norway, developing the next generation of video conferencing solutions. Johan started meddling with distributed version control and Git in 2007, and has been heavily involved in migrations from CVS to git (at Opera) and Subversion to Git (at Cisco). He also occasionally contributes patches to Git itself.
