Have you ever tried to port code between git branches and found it's more complicated than simple cherry-picking? Or have you ever found yourself working concurrently on multiple features/fixes within the same git repository, and struggled to maintain clean topic branches for each strand of work?

This talk will introduce the following git tools and demonstrate how they can be used to help with these and other development workflow challenges:

  • git-deps - a tool for performing automatic analysis and visualisation of dependencies between commits in a repository

  • git-explode - a tool for automatically exploding a single branch into independent topic branches based on dependencies between commits

  • git-splice, git-transplant - more tools for simplifying branch surgery

Whether you are a new or experienced git user, you'll walk away from this talk with a handy set of tools that reduce menial and repetitive tasks, and an increased awareness of the possibilities for automating higher-level workflows in git.
