May the GIT --FORCE Be With You
These Are Not the Commits You're Looking For
You know how to get things done with git: pull, add, commit, push; but have you mastered it like a jedi does the force? Nothing is a more lasting record of our work then our git commits. In a galaxy where companies ask you for your Github account in lieu of, or in addition to a resume, we have one more reason to make sure that our commit history is as readable as our code itself.
We'll cover the following:
- Rewriting commits
- Reordering commits
- Combining commits
- Improving commit messages
- Branching strategies
- Finding bugs using git
- How to avoid common pitfalls
You'll leave this session a jedi-level git master!
