Git Merge is sold out: see what's on tap


Git Merge kicks off in less than a week in New York City on April 5th—and tickets are already sold out! The conference will bring together Git contributors, source control teams, and end-users from around the world for a full day of sessions, trainings, and networking. Here’s a peek into some of the talks and workshops you won’t want to miss:

A look inside

Discover how some of the most interesting companies in the world are using Git:

  • Lars Schneider from Autodesk will recount their journey to on-board 4000+ engineers with 200+ different code bases.

  • Saeed Noursalehi from Microsoft will share the journey—both social and technical—of moving the majority of Microsoft’s product development onto Git.
  • Juan Pablo Buritica from will teach us to stay relevant by looking at the surprising parallels between modern kitchens and effective engineering teams.
