Source Code Management and Version Control Systems are tools for helping you track your file based assets (typically source code). Traditional SCM systems are centralised (CVS, Subversion, Visual Source Safe), Distributed version control systems systems provide new capabilities, work-flows, are becoming mature and are gaining mind share in the open source community.
Git is one of those Distributed Version Control Systems. It was invented by the creator of Linux (Linus Torvalds) for protecting the Linux kernel source code and coordinating the activity of hundreds of developers. This talk discusses what Distributed Version Control is, the history of Git, basic version control features and some very uncommon and amazing capabilities of git. Time permitting it will include live demonstration of the tools.
