On-site Git workshops

Git Grit teaches entire departments Git concepts and best practices. This prevents code loss and conflicts, eliminates unnecessary tools, and establishes good, consistent Git habits.

A one day workshop covers everything from day-to-day use to fixing mistakes to release management strategies... all in a practical, hands-on manner so that people "git" it!
