I've been doing a bit of traveling lately on the second leg of the Getting Git Right tour. It's been a blast meeting so many devs from around the world. It's been particularly incredible to see how much git adoption has grown amongst attendees in the few months since we did the first leg of the tour. When we presented in July, almost all attendees raised their hand when we asked "Who's using git?". However, there is one low point during every evening that I've hosted: the moment after I ask the
