I had heard about the router debacle but I wasn’t aware of the massive changes required to move from the router in the beta until I updated the articles.

Barbaric Tip of the Week is a weekly series whose main purpose is to share tiny bits of knowledge that I find specially useful and interesting.
Last week I experienced one of the weirdest moments I have ever had with git and something that should never ever happen within the secure confines of a version control system: I lost a commit. My source code, everything that I had been working on for 3 hours wiped out from existence.

It was a ton of fun as usual. The conference was awesome, the organizers did a great job, everything ran super smoothly, the speakers were very kind and great to hang out with, the attendees were engaged and great to have a random conversation with here and there, and the people at Active Solution were a blast to be around. So thank you everyone for making it happen!

Anyhow, here are my slides and a bunch of useful links that serve as a superb companion for the presentation.
