New year, new Tinel, new speaker. 20th edition of Tinel Meetup will feature a talk by Werkspot’s Software Engineer – Pauline Vos.
People tend to have Git issues on a regular basis, and if that’s the case with you – it’s possible that you are not using it optimally. This talk will lay out how to make your life easier only by changing your daily Git usage through atomic commits and other best practices. Next time you’re pulling your hair out from rebase hell, remember this talk.
Many Git users tend to use Git as a save point, like in a video game; chronologically making checkpoint commits as they go. This spreads out changes to the same areas in the code over several commits, necessitates merging and resolving conflicts, and generally just making an incomprehensible jumble of your history. This talk makes a case for atomic commits and how to use them while only minimally affecting your workflow.
Using pre-recorded demos, you’ll learn how to properly interactively rebase, fix up, reset, bisect, and more. By the end of the talk, you’ll have seen how this Git flow will make your life easier and how it will affect your ability to cherry pick, drop unwanted commits, and most importantly: not spend hours resolving conflicts in rebasing hell.
