Git’ting Started: Everything you always wanted to know, but were afraid to ask about Git

This will be a technical talk that covers using Git for version control, why it’s useful for WordPress developers, as well as Git’s advantages over SVN. You’ll see specific use-cases from consultants and best-practice developers in the Community who use Git for their projects. We’ll walk through concepts like creating a repo, committing files, versioning, and using Git to work in teams and avoid “Cowboy Coding.” You’ll also get a walkthrough of deploying to a WordPress site with Git, and conclude with Q&A.
