Git is a version control system that has become extremely popular over the last decade. While primarily intended to manage software source code, it is finding increasing usage for other purposes and by people with varying professional backgrounds. This talk will explain the basic concepts, terms, and workflows of Git, as well as a small amount of its internal design to help improve understanding for people who are not computer programmers by trade.
