Don't Fear the Branch

Marcus Bertrand, Atlassian

Last Summit, we walked you through a migration from SVN to Git. So now you’re on Git – but what do you do with those branches? Branching in Git is great, but can be intimidating for those coming over from other SCMs. In this talk, you will learn all about branches – how to use them, organize them, and even revert an accidental merge. Embrace those branches and make them work for your team.
