Part of the series: Introduction to Git

Initiated by Klaatu, this open series introduces Git and the concepts behind its use in a collaborative environment.

This episode is light on actual commands, and mostly a narrative analysis of what git HEAD is and why it matters to you.

Some commands you can try:

$ cat ~/path/to/git/repo/.git/HEAD

and

$ ls ~/path/to/git/repo/.git/refs
$ cat ~/path/to/git/repo/.git/refs/master
