Rebasing Simplified

November 27, 2009    

It occurred to me while I was working on a presentation about git for work, that rebasing happens every day, we just don’t think about it that way.Every time we get the latest version from (almost) any source control server, those changes get merged into our current working directory. That makes the changes we’ve been editing appear as if they were written after the latest server changes, even though we wrote them before.And that’s rebasing in a nutshell.
