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.
I want to thank you for taking Git Essential Training. We covered some powerful techniques for managing your source code in this training title. Using Git can revolutionize the way you code. You'll have more confidence to make big changes knowing that your old versions are only just a few keystrokes away. You'll feel empowered to try new ideas and code branches without worrying that you might break the main project. And you'll be able to collaborate effectively with other Git users, whether it's on your own project, on a company or client project, or on an open source project. I think you'll find that Git changes the way you code in less obvious ways too.
Your changes will become smaller and more focused. The intentions behind each of your changes will be made more clear. Git forces us to continually consider what we are doing and why we are doing it. Git also helps us to see the changes that others make so that we can learn from their choices and their style. Once you start using it, you will quickly consider Git to be an indispensable tool for all development.
