That's a great point. Once I started picturing the git tree it really made a lot more sense.

On this note, how much is mastering git different from other parts of software development? Like, is learning to visualize the tree different from visualizing the structure of an application or data flow?

True, not much is different.

As with anything, it's all about experience. You have to push yourself to fully understand the problem and try new solutions. Many developers just do what they know, and in this case, only scratch the surface of Git.

I'm definitely guilty of continuing to grow my skills in most areas of software development, but only doing the minimum in advancing my deeper understanding of git. Something I plan to fix πŸ™ƒ
