This Bret Victor talk is well worth the 55 minutes. The first part is primarily geared toward coders and how creation tools could/should be better. Some amazing tool concepts demoed from 3:55 to 16:00. Then the talk starts to get really good.

Why write good commit messages, the internals of Git

Although this is 4 years old, it still applies today. I forward this URL to every new person coming to git because it is that important why Git needs them. The reason why it is important to write them in the first place is because:

- Allows you to take advantage of Git console/app features.

So make sure you write proper Git messages, it makes your peers, et el happy :)

I know. Qt Quick apps generate a lot of stuff. Some of the project-related files seem like they would be helpful to commit, but where to draw the line isn't always obvious.

3-D printing on an architectural scale
There is very little that’s easy about moon colonization. One of the bigger problems is setting up our hypothetical future colonists with living quarters.
