Thomas currently works at Wells Fargo as a Puppet Engineer, where he uses git every day. He's been using git for a long time and decided to get past the 'turn it off and back on' mentality with git. He's given a few talks about git at conferences and meetups. He's made a few hook scripts here and there as well. He also knows what 4b825dc642cb6eb9a060e54bf8d69288fbee4904 means.
