Git is the lingua franca of open source development, but many developers only learn and use the basic features it provides. A fuller embrace of Git can simplify the development process, but it can also make a big difference when making a contribution to an open source project. On a fast moving project, you may run into conflicts that you need to manage, or rework that needs to happen if your initial contributions needs some tweaks. This talk will walk through a number of common scenarios around contributing code and managing open source projects, and provide a framework for thinking through approaches to streamline the process and simplify the contributing experience for everyone.
