The Git Parable – Thanks Tom Preston-Werner

The Git Parable a great article to read if you’re trying to understand Git.  I am working on a Social Mashup/Aggregator project that is going to use a framework called Newd by the CP+B Group.  The project was stored in github.  I needed a quick intro to Git so I could checkout the code and get started.  I found many articles on the basic Git commands but they all left me wondering how Git is different from SVN and how it really works.  I found The Git Parable to be the most helpful in explaining how Git works underneath.  It also helped me understand how GIT differs from subversion and how powerful it is.  If your new to Git or just want a greater understanding of how Git works The Git Parable is a must read.
