Bio: Michael G Schwern is the author of Test::More (the Perl testing system) and Gitpan, 21,000 repositories on Github representing every release of every Perl module on CPAN. Schwern does not push to master, master pushes to Schwern.

Synopsis: Tinker Toys are the best illustration of a Git repository I’ve found. Side-by-side with issuing Git commands, we’ll build a Git repository out of kid’s toys to show what’s going on behind the scenes. Mind bending concepts like remote branches, rebase and the staging area become child’s play.

Basic knowledge of git commands is expected of the audience (init, add, commit, diff, log, push, pull). If you’ve started using git, but are uncomfortable with it and don’t really get it, this is for you.
