As part of this #CourageToCreate track, Sara will lead a workshop on Mastering the Git Porcelain Commands: Have you ever deleted your .git folder to start over? Or panicked because you got into a detached head state or `git log` was missing commits? (I did many times getting started!) In this interactive “active learning”-based talk, you’ll compare and contrast similar git commands using a git visualization tool. You’ll recognize the benefits and tradeoffs between: rebase vs merge, revert vs reset, log vs reflog, bisect vs blame, and more! And you’ll never need to delete your .git folder again!
