Screencast: How Git stores data

published on in category Git , Tags: git screencast

In this screencast we’re exploring the way Git saves files, directories commits and tags in it’s internal data structure, how we can inspect them and how they related to each other.

This video is meant to provide additional information for people that already use Git and want to know how it works under the hood.

Actually I like this approach to learn things and I think I’ll do another screencast on this topic, maybe providing additional information about how pack files and garbage collection works, how branches are stored and how integrity of data is ensured by their filenames.

Software used: Git 2.13.6, zsh 5.3
