Git was initially developed as a distributed version control system to manage the development of the Linux kernel. Almost a decade later, Git became one of the most popular version control systems, and Microsoft added support for Git to the Visual Studio IDE.
Edward Thomson has been building version control software for decades, and was one of the developers who brought Git into Microsoft. Edward was a Senior Software Engineer at Microsoft, where he developed the low-level repository management functionality for Visual Studio.
Edward is currently a software engineer at GitHub, where he continues to build solutions for the Git version control system.
