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.
Welcome, to Git Essential Training. My name is Kevin Scotland. In this course we're going to learned how to use Git to manage files and source code. We'll look at the fundamental concepts behind all version control systems and then gain an understanding of the architecture that Git uses. We will use Git to track changes to files and source code, whether those changes are adding, editing, deleting, or moving files. And we'll discuss how to write clear messages that describe the changes that you made and learn to compare different versions of a file to see a line by line comparison of what changed.
We'll learn how to undo changes that you've made even if you already recorded those changes in Git. We'll create branches of our code to try new ideas without altering the main project, and then we'll merge those changes into the project when those features are finished. And last we'll see how to use our remote repository to enable collaboration with other Git users. It doesn't matter if you're a complete beginner or if you have some prior experience, we're going to cover all the fundamentals that you need to use Git for source code management. So let's get started learning about Git.
