Session Block: 

Have you used git? Huh? Well, what SCM do you use? You don’t? Why not? It’s the way of the Drupal!

Target Skill Level: 

I hate talking to other developers and having this conversation, source control management tools are incredibly important in managing your code. Git is the SCM that the Drupal project is switching to so it’s important that you get a head start on learning git and understanding how SCM can make you and your team better developers. In this presentation we’ll discuss source control, the basics of git, talk about managing your code, and hopefully get you interested in version control and git, or at least show you the pretty graphs that github produces.
