The course shows how to use Git, the popular open-source version control software, to manage changes to source code and text files. Using a step-by-step approach, author Kevin Skoglund presents the commands that enable efficient code management and reveals the fundamental concepts behind version control systems and the Git architecture. Discover how to track changes to files in a repository, review previous edits, and compare versions of a file; create branches to test new ideas without altering the main project; and merge those changes into the project if they work out. The course begins by demonstrating version control in a single-user, standalone context, before exploring how remote repositories allow users to collaborate on projects effectively.
Many of you are probably new to Git, but not new to the world of development, and you probably have some tools that you already like to use. Typically, these would be editors and integrated development environments, or IDEs for short. If you have a favorite tool, it's very possible that that tool has some kind of Git integration available for it. For example, I'll just show you with TextMate, TextMate has bundles, and under Bundles you'll see there is a listing for Git. And there's lots of different features that we can do right from TextMate in Git.
So if we want to see our status, we can just run git status right here from inside Git, and there are some quick keys and shortcuts that will make that faster. And if your favorite editor or IDE doesn't have Git support built-in, there may be a plug-in that adds that functionality. I won't go through all of them, but I am just going to list off some of the more popular editors and integrated development environments that you might use. All of these have some kind of Git integration available to them. So if any of these are something that you're already using, you'll definitely want to look for those features and find out how to use them.
