Join my Army of Git Zombies!

Length: 60 minutes


These slides were intended to accompany a very short introduction to the Git version control system and its internals, but most of the content was ad-libbed demonstrations of the commands and their effects on the repository, so the slides may not be very much use. In fact, the attendees at the conference did not see most of the slides because I spent so much time adlibbing.

I delivered this talk at FOSSCON 2011 in Philadelphia.
