Committing the commit message

45 minute beginner seminar


For their one millionth (1,000,000) SVN commit, a developer left a message consisting of a huge ASCII version of the company’s logo and the text ‘Git, anyone?’ Commit messages are sometimes funny but also an integral part of a developer's workflow. In this talk, I will show how to create great commit messages and make your git history fabulous. We will go from writing a commit message to how Git or your source control provider formats your commit message up to what should be included in your commit message.
