Writing good git history

I firmly believe that writing a good git history, or narrative is important and worthwhile.

Future Developer will thanks us when they’re using git log -S to find a particular line or fragment, or when they’re using git bisect to figure out when and how a particular defect was introduced.

In the past I’ve given a talk about crafting a lovely git narrative. Thankfully, there’s no recording of that talk.

However, both of these two talks are recorded, and are much better than mine.

At the time of recording, both these people worked at Financial Times. It’s almost as if that organisation cares about good use of git… maybe I should apply to work there 🤔
