Git Merge 2013

A free Git user conference in Berlin · May 9-11, 2013

Git Merge is over! Catch up the videos, or see what attendees wrote about what happened.


Git Merge is a Git user conference held to bring together Git users and Git developers. This May we will be getting together in Berlin to improve the world of Git for everyone.


The Git community needs to get together every once in a while to talk about the future of Git. This is that time and that place.


Everyone. The first day is for core Git developers. The second day is for users of Git to share how they're using it and how they would like to use it. The final day is a hack day where everyone can help build tools and features for Git.

The Git Merge conferences are put together by the GitHub crew.
