Git: the stupid NOSQL database

with his furious Rock Band drumming skills, he’s usually researching
the secret history of the world through the Planetary organization.

About his presentation: Git: the stupid NOSQL database

Many of us use Git as our source control tool of choice. But the man
page says Git is a “stupid content tracker.” Apps and libraries are
able to use Git for all sorts of other things, such as a distributed
key/value store. We’ll take a look at how you can start using Git as
the canonical data store for your app, why you would want to, and what
the pitfalls you might run into are.
