Git is a powerful distributed version control system that the Drupal community is moving towards, so what a perfect time to get acquainted with the newest tech to integrate with Drupal. I'll cover how Git differs from centralized version controls systems like CVS as well as a "how to" to utilise some of Git's key advantages.

Intended audience:
Non-Git users, new Git users and people who'd like to understand better how Git differs from traditional VCS.
