GIT by Erwan Daubert

Hi Everybody,

Today’s coffee is going to be about Git.

The Urban Dictionary defines Git as “A completely ignorant, childish person with no manners” [1], so it is no wonder that our dear Erwan is such an expert

Wait a second, I think Erwan is referring to Git [2], the decentralized version control system. All the better we have this talk since Git is a powerful and majestic tool that deserves to be used in only the most respectful manner. Just for the anecdote, after a fallout with a tool provider, Git was developed by Linus Torvalds et al. to be used for developing the most awesome operating system in the known universe, Linux! Git is now quite a success and is leading the way towards social coding with sites like Github and Bitbucket building collaborative environments around it.

I don’t want to spoil anything else, so let’s give Erwan a big hand.

Best regards,
Walter Rudametkin
