The Git Historian
Your git repository’s log wants to tell you a story, with valuable clues about how your software became the thing of beauty (or horrible mess) that it is today. You just need to know how and where to look. In this talk, we’ll dig into a project’s history to learn how it evolved, using only the git command line utility to search through commits–no extra software required!
