Tracking Huge Files with Git LFS - Tim Pettersen, Atlassian

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Developers love Git for its raw speed, powerful history traversal, distributed nature, and (of course) the fact that it was originally built by 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, MIT licensed project to solve this problem: Git LFS (Large File Support). This means researchers, kernel developers, web designers, game developers, multimedia producers and other Linux ecosystem participants who need to work with large data and rich media can move off legacy centralized systems and start using modern version control.

In this session I'll cover the computer science behind Git LFS' internals & architecture, CLI usage and how to build an effective Git LFS workflow for an open source team.

Senior Developer, Atlassian
I'm a veteran Atlassian developer with ten years of service across the JIRA and Bitbucket teams. I speak and blog about Git, developer workflows, continuous integration/deployment, Java and Atlassian's developer tools. Talk to me about API design, plugin architecture, Java, Node.js, DVCS, or anything cool that you're hacking on!
