Practical workflows with Git LFS


Developers love Git for its raw speed, powerful history traversal, distributed nature, and the fact that it was built by uber developer Linus Torvalds. What we don't love is the fact that, out of the box, Git has terrible support for tracking large binary files!

Fortunately, developers from Atlassian, GitHub, and Visual Studio Online have teamed up to work on an open source project to solve this problem: Git LFS (Large File Support). This means researchers, web designers, game developers and all other developers who need to work with large data files and rich media can move off legacy centralized systems and start using modern version control.

In this session I'll cover Git LFS internals & architecture, CLI usage, team workflows and how to use it with Eclipse EGit. Attendees will be able to take the practical advice from this session back to their teams and start using Git LFS with their hosting provider of choice.
