I'm pleased to announce that Randal Schwartz  will be presenting Git at
the Thousand Oaks Perl Mongers tomorrow (Wednesday) night at 7pm. If you
are in the LA area I recommend you make the trek up to Thousand Oaks this
time as Randal is a well known speaker with a lot wisdom and advice to
share. I'll pick up some snacks (pizza, sandwiches...) and drinks for
everyone to partake in. Please see below  for more directions and other
information about this event.
Here's Randal's blurb on this presentation:
Introduction to the Git distributed version control system
When you have hundreds of people simultaneously patching 25000 files of
the Linux Kernel in sometimes conflicting ways, you might need some
or plan to sort all that out before you can build your next kernel and
reboot. The Linux team uses "git" for their source code repository
management, a homegrown solution that is optimized for highly distributed
development, working with huge sets of files, merging independent work at
multiple levels, and seeing who broke what. (Git has also since been
notably adopted by the Android, Freedesktop.org, OLPC, Wine, GCC, jQuery,
Maemo, Prototype, Samba, VLC, and of course many of the Perl projects
including the Perl core.) In my talk, I describe what "git" is and
and why you should use it instead of CVS, Subversion, SVK, Arch, Darcs,
Mercurial, Monotone, Bazaar, and just about every other repository
manager. I'll also walk though the basic concepts so that the manpages
might start making sense. If I have time, I'll even do a live
where you can watch how fast I make typos.
See you all tomorrow night!
