Change history with git rebase. Using the command 'git rebase' can help you maintain a clean commit history and avoid merge conflicts in your code base, by manipulating your commit history. Learn how to use git rebase and it's options to merge multiple commits into one, change the order of commits, and more. We'll also explore some of the drawbacks of git rebase so you know when you should, and should not, use this powerful command.

Britney Wright is currently a web developer at the publishing company Simon & Schuster.


There are no refunds if you are unable to attend. The $5 cost is donation to the GDI NYC scholarship fund.
