Atlassian Source Tree
Knowledge is Power: Getting out of trouble by understanding Git [46:50] at Devoxx Nov 2015 by Steve Smith dives into the Git data model.
git add some-file.txt
“A blank commit will always yield the same SHA” is WRONG because a time stamp is inside the content hashed?
He shows a video clip of “Prince of Persia” who gets out of trouble by using his time travel device.
Git Real 1 and 2
This series provides a real hands-on learning experience by making you enter the commands.
Hashes as playing cards
The “Magic of Git Exposed” by Andy Benedict (andy at andybenedict.com) Apr 4, 2016 illustrates concepts using a custom deck of playing cards you can print out from US letter paper or European A4 paper.
- Part 1 [7:14] begins with an apt “incomprehensible incantations”.
[2:02] His “Git in One Sentence” is epic (and quite complete):
“Git is a version control system design to track the history of text files across multiple distributed instances, without the need for constant communication between instances, by representing files, their relationships, and their history as complete, raw data blogs stored in a compressed database indexed by statistically unique, content based, pseudo-random hashes and whose entire history and content can be accessed, from any arbitrary starting point, by means of recursive traversal or its node space, which is best represented in the form of a directed acyclic graph mapped, along with its content, in four dimensions.”
Instead of SHA hash codes, the video uses the more familiar references used in a 52-card deck of playing cards, such as the Jack of diamonds. The deck has a known sequence (Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10, etc.) for each of four French “suits” (hearts, diamonds, clubs, spades).
Great idea. But I was confused by the explanation.
Part 3 [8:15] talks about a 3-way merge.
The deck of different players are different Git branches.
