In this next installment in our mini-series on learning Git, Bart Busschots gives us some foundational knowledge on how to work beyond being one person with one Git repository.
He starts by reinforcing what he’s explained before, that Git is a peer-to-peer technology, which is hard to wrap your head around if you’re used to client-server relationships. He walks us through three scenarios to explain how every “actor” gets a repository and why. Then he explains the jargon of “local” vs “remotes”. It’s at this point that my head started to hurt, but Bart claims this is where I’m value-added to the podcast. I ask all the questions you might have, and I suspect many more than you have. Bart sticks with me and makes sure I fully understand.
