Advanced Git – Functionality and Features

Join Brent Laster, open-source trainer and author of Professional Git, as he surveys Git beyond the basics. This presentation will be a quick overview of various advanced (and useful) Git commands and features, including:

  • Types of merges: Fast-forward, three-way, others
  • Rebasing vs. merging
  • Interactive Rebasing
  • Rerere – reuse recorded resolution
  • Bisect
  • Submodules
  • Subtrees
  • Working Trees

Anyone who needs to work with Git (or currently does) can gain value from this session. A cursory knowledge of Git (such as from the previous GitHub Patchwork presentation) is recommended.
