About the Author
David Demaree is a web developer, designer, speaker, and product person based just outside New York City. He's a senior product manager for Adobe Typekit, working on ways to make it easy for everyone to find and use great fonts wherever they need type. David has spoken at design and tech events in the United States, Europe, and Australia, and he writes about software on Medium.

Git for Humans isn't simply a Git reference; it shows us how to use Git thoughtfully. From the mechanics of commands to the oft-overlooked details of writing clear and useful commit messages, David helps us understand how and why using Git will make our jobs easier.


Customer support representative, Adobe Typekit

Whether you're a beginner or you've used Git for a while, this book is for you. With ease, David explains everything from what's happening under the hood to command-line prompts. You'll learn new things about Git and firm up the knowledge you already have.


Front-end developer and writer

You can't succeed in the modern tech industry without understanding Git workflows. Thankfully, now there's a guide that makes Git genuinely accessible-and this is it. It's wonderful to see the power of Git expressed in clear, straightforward terms. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who works in technology.


Cofounder of Postlight and author of What Is Code

Even if you're very comfortable working with code, Git is a concept that can take a few days just to get used to. In Git for Humans, David's easygoing tone reduces the learning curve. He explains the ins and outs of Git (and the command line) in a swift and comprehensive read. If you haven't used Git (or if you have), this book is essential to really understanding it.
