A Random Walk Through Git

Git is part of the workflow of many developers on a daily basis, yet much of it remains a bit magic to most people. This walkthrough tries to give a glimpse behind the curtains.

We are not giving recipes here. Instead, we fasten seatbelts and launch right into the gritty details. Fear not the .git subfolder and its object files!

You can lean back and just follow the walkthrough - or you can clone the script that generated the walkthrough web site, stop it at any point, inspect the state of things, or even improve the script and create a pull request.
