Its distributed nature along with speed and flexibility aligns its self with todays agile and fast paced web development environment. This previously recorded webinar covers the common mechanics of using Git while also pointing out standard "gotchas" that new adopters of Git face. This webinar is considered a teaser for the full Blue Collar Git that I'll be giving in Charlotte.

A well built map can make data and ideas accessible to people in a way that is not always easy to do in words. Most of us use maps on our phones and in our cars to help us get around. What you don’t see everyday are maps being used to share dense amounts of information in easily accessible and highly informative ways.
