#311 Get inside the .git folder

These days Git is synonymous with source control itself. Rare are the current debates of whether to use git vs SVN vs some fossil like SourceSafe vs you name it. But do you know how Git works?

What listeners think

Interesting and entertaining
I'm an avid listener of podcasts going way back before this was a big thing. This is one of those special gems worth listening to, learn something new or remind me of what is possible in Python.

Informative, addictive, and powerful!
I have been following this podcast since awhile now and I have to say that Michael does a great job picking topics which listeners relate to and all the information is very much helpful for a person who is getting their feet wet in Python or an experienced developer. Each and every episode, I learn at least one thing that motivates me to change my day to day life. I am looking for more Python stuff and I would love Michael to continue with the same speed as he is going. Highly recommended for all Pythonistas.
