Source code management and version control are absolutely essential to a successful software and web development project, especially when working with a team of developers. If your development workflow does not include Git, you're doing it wrong! Git it right! Git was first developed in 2005 by Linus Torvalds (yes, THE Linus Torvalds) as a distributed system for managing the development of the Linux kernel. Today, Git is used by companies and organizations large and small. According to the official Git webiste (http://git-scm.com/), Git is used Google, Micorosoft, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, just to name a few. Even the Joomla CMS and Joomla Platform teams now use Git.
In this presentation, Cory Webb discusses Git and how his company uses Git to manage their web development workflow. He will go over some basic Git commands that every developer should know, as well as cover some popular tools for using Git locally and for hosting Git repositories. He will also open a discussion about how to overcome the limitations of Git, primarily when it comes to managing changes in the database between development and production servers.
