Git Internals - Graphs, Hashes, and Compression - John Britton, GitHub

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Git is a version control system built on well known patterns in computer science. John will take you to the very bottom. The floor. The code. The algorithms. The directed acyclic graph of hashed bit sequences made efficient through LZW compression and deferred garbage collection determined by node reachability via hash relationships. We want and need to know precisely how things work. Let’s dig into the guts of Git.
