6:30 - 7:45 Using Git for Version Control | Benjamin Woodruff

In software development, Git is a distributed revision control and source code management system with an emphasis on speed. Git was initially designed and developed by Linus Torvalds in 2005 for Linux kernel development. It has since been adopted by many other projects.

Git's primitives are not inherently a source code management (SCM) system. Torvalds explains, "In many ways you can just see git as a filesystem — it's content-addressable, and it has a notion of versioning, but I really really designed it coming at the problem from the viewpoint of a filesystem person (hey, kernels is what I do), and I actually have absolutely zero interest in creating a traditional SCM system".

Benjamin Woodruff studies computer science and enjoys working with Git. Ben's presentation will be interactive and you can follow the examples and demos on your own computer if you bring one to the meeting.
