Talk in English - UK at ScotlandPHP 2018
Short URL: https://joind.in/talk/9d2f2 (QR-Code (opens in new window))
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.
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 rebase hell. A little change in habits can go a very long way!

Great talk by Pauline. A couple of useful updates for Git that I didn’t know. Presentation was great, and demos worked well. The display of the QR code was useful, but would have been great to add the url on screen as well (but that’s me nitpicking). Looking forward to more talks
A great talk which a lot of developers should see :) keep it up!
Good talk. I always enjoy coming to a conference to find I've been doing it all wrong.....
Good reminders, thanks for the cheatsheet
Honestly my only complaint would be that I'd have liked to see URLs alongside the QR codes. Great talk otherwise. Thanks
This was a great talk. It was really useful even for someone who uses Git regularly.
The explanation of binary searching using eggs was a superb nugget.
Excellent talk from Pauline, engaging and practical. Looking forward to trying out git bisect next week!
Every developer should see this talk. Such great tips and pointers for using Git properly. I think so many developers and teams are under-utilising Git simply because they don't know any better.
We have plans to run through Pauline's slides with the team and to get everyone on board with following her advice.
I thought I knew git quite well, but this taught me things I didn't even think to do.
As someone who's not ventured much beyond the "checkpoint commit" way of using version control, this was a real eye-opener. And presented with such confidence it was hard to believe it was the speaker's first conference presentation.
Fantastic talk. I thought I knew git inside out and Pauline has proven me wrong. Most developers, even if they are comfortable with git, should see this talk.
