- [Instructor] In the last chapter, we covered the basics … of tracking files with Git. … We learned to track new files, to view and capture … the changes to files and notice when files … have been deleted moved, or renamed. … And we learned to use the log … to view previous commits and the status command … to see the uncommitted changes. … These commands together, make up about 75% … of the work you will do with Git. … They are the core actions you will repeat … over and over again. … In this chapter, I want us to switch from using … simple example files, to using files that better reflect … a real project. … You can still hang on to that first Git project … we were working with before. … It can serve as a sandbox. … A place where you can go if you have questions, … or you want to experiment. … For the new exercise files, … you can use one of your own projects, … but if you do I recommend using a copy, … so that you're free to experiment and make mistakes, … or you can follow along with me. …
