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 about it's internals? I'm sure you've seen a .git folder in your project's root. But to most folks, it's a black box.

In this episode, you'll meet Rob Richardson. He's going pop the lid on that black box as we dive into git internals and the .git folder, among other things source control.
