Even without the 'required' git knowledge this session was interesting and enlighting as a SVN user! Thanks!

For me, from a technical point of view, it was the most interesting talk of the day. I already knew Git, but the stuff from the talk was all "new". Good job explaining these things!

Interesting, entertaining and even enlightening ... I'll have to give Git a try ;)

Sadly only saw the latter half of the talk, but still got some great info on how to use git. Some good visuals in the slides especially helped with understanding the way various things in git related to each other.
