Dissecting Gits Guts

June 27, Time TBD

How does Git work? In this session, we’ll explore and use Git’s plumbing commands to dissect what is going on behind the scenes at a low level when you use Git.

We’ll walk through the underlying structures that constitute Git as we go spelunking in the .git folder, and explore its various parts: the objects directory (where we’ll inspect blobs, tree objects, and commit objects and how they relate to one another), the HEAD file, and finally, the refs folder, where we’ll look at heads. As we examine the general layout, we’ll discuss how Git is essentially structured as a Merkle DAG. Finally, we’ll look at Git’s garbage collection and how it ties into the system’s general structure.

Along the way, we’ll solidify our conceptual understanding of Git, exploring questions such as: How does Git store our information? What is at the heart of a branch? What is actually happening when you do a Git checkout? Or a reset? Why is data (almost) never lost in Git?

Demolitions and Dalí: Web Dev and Data in a Graph Database

June 27, Time TBD

Neo4j is a NoSQL graph database based on links between records. This workshop uses Python code samples to walk through two real-world examples of linked data, including designing a graph database from scratch, for art and artists at the Museum of Modern Art, and analyzing demolition data by processing road network data from OpenStreetMap.
