Martin and Edward talk with Emma Jane Hogbin Westby about her book, Git for Teams, about using Git to successfully collaborate with team members and how to teach people to use version control. In this episode, they also discuss humanizing software development and making Git more friendly to beginners.

For over 20 years Emma Jane Hogbin Westby has been been bringing people together through education, collaboration, and technology. Her latest book, Git for Teams (O’Reilly, 2015), outlines real-world strategies for more than just software development; it shows how teams can harness both technology and collaboration to work more efficiently, ensure project goals are met, and make the whole greater than simply the sum of its parts.
