Talk in English - UK at PHP Yorkshire 2017

These days almost all developers use Git on a daily basis. Many of us learnt a few relevant commands by rote, but a deep understanding of what it is actually doing seems to be a rarity. Git’s man pages frequently lie about what is really going on, and the majority of third-party documentation is similarly misleading.
This isn’t a "how to" talk on Git. I won’t give you a list of commands to learn. There won’t be any advice on merging vs. rebasing, or on continuous integration. The goal of this talk is to give a clear, factual insight into what the various Git commands actually do, and what is actually being stored in the commit graph. Afterwards, you may be able to make sense of a Git problem more easily, but I’ll be focusing on understanding the tool, not on the best way to use it.

Great first talk. Well structured and cleanly delivered with a few jokes. I leaned a lot!
Awesome! Funny, informative and really well delivered!
Superb talk, very interesting and kept on point the humour kept it from getting too heavy.
Definitely some really appreciated insights into the workings. I felt it was more of walk through of commands than I was expecting but I will also admit I don't have any advice on how to mitigate that.
Hard subject with a great speaker !
Improvable Probably using some git screenshots and giving a little general overview could be helpful to involve all level of odience !!!
Sam spoke clearly, explained concepts well, and delivered the talk well with a great sense of humour. You wouldn't believe that this was Sam's first conference talk!
