In January of 2016, I joined Facebook and had to make the switch from
hg. To be honest, I wasn't really some sort zen master of
git, but it didn't take me long to completely forget everything I know about it.
Now that I've moved on to Pinterest, I'm once again back in the
git-o-sphere. This time, I'm supporting the team that's responsible for, among other things, the company's source code management. Not only is
git a part of my everyday work, but our team is an advocate for
git best practices. It's a bit of a rude awakening for a guy that was deep into
hg just a few months ago!
Since I'm making that transition, I decided it was time to move the repository that backs this site from
git (and more specifically github.com). Hopefully, I'll be able to update more often and talk about what I've learned along the way.
