Version Control.

This is an open series in which Hacker Public Radio Listeners can share their knowledge and experience of version or revision control systems such as Bazaar, Mercurial, Subversion, CVS and Git.

In this show I talk about the git version control system. I won't give example commands, but I discuss concepts like commits, branches, merging, push and pull, and rebasing. I also talk about the git workflow I use.

I will put some more info on

Great show and Great Shownotes

Hoi Johan,

What an excellent first episode. I found myself drawing the A and B branches until I twigged that your show notes has it all drawn out.

Well done.

Another one for the history books!

This is a great episode. You did a fantastic job of explaining the basic idea of git, and why someone would want to use it instead of being ugly and stupid. Well done, JohanV.
