Happy 10th Birthday Git!
If you read this blog, you’ve probably already heard that today marks the 10 year anniversary of Git’s first commit (of its own code). My buddy Ryan and I decided to build this really cool web site to celebrate, but ideas are easy and execution can be tough. We have a simple static that references the first commit:
The fun feature we didn’t get around to adding was an interactive page to display the most recent commit, but always 10 years in the past. Even though we didn’t get around to completing that before the actual “10th birthday”, we decided to make the source open so anybody can give back to git with a pull request for neat features you have.
Also, thanks to Linus, Junio, and the rest of the contributors for giving us git!
