Very true. Git uses the term plumbing (core commands) and porcelain 
(convenience commands). I found plumbing easier to understand than 
porcelain. Porcelain is handy once you "git" it. The new vocab does take 
some time to get used to ;-).

FWIW, https://youtu.be/MYP56QJpDr4 has a live session on git plumbing
