git reflog helps developers recover from their mistakes. The reflog keeps track of any changes or commits to each branch since cloning a repository. It's frequently used to keep track of changes made locally that are sometimes wiped out when pulling in remote changes.

This lesson demonstrates how to use git reflog to restore git commits and branches that have been lost. We will clone a repo, make some changes with commits and branches, remove all of those changes, and then use data from the reflog to restore them.
