Posted in Companies, Conferences on March 10, 2012



YUI uses Git to host all of its project code, and all of its open-sourced code is hosted on GitHub. Git is an exciting departure from traditional version control systems like CVS and SVN because the notion of distribution is embedded in its DNA. YUI engineering manager Jenny Donnelly gives an introduction to Git and how to use it in the real world, including branching and committing, a typical git workflow, merge vs rebase, and tips and tricks that will make your life easier.
