GitLFS - How to handle large files in Git - Lars Schneider - FOSSASIA Summit 2017

Published on: Saturday, 18 March 2017

Speaker(s): Lars Schneider (Berlin), Autodesk Inc.

Git became really successful in the Open Source world and, more recently, in the corporate world as well. However, Git is not suited for large files by design which is a major obstacle for many adopters. GitLFS is an extension to Git which addresses this problem. In this talk I will explain how GitLFS works and how Autodesk uses it at scale for 4000+ engineers and 1000+ repositories. You will also learn how to use it properly and how to avoid the most common pitfalls. If you have worked with Git before then this talk will prepare you to handle large files without trouble in Git!
