Matthew McCullough, trainer for GitHub.com, and Tim Berglund, co-presenter of the O’Reilly Git Master Class, will guide you through the fundamentals of Git in three hours of lecture, discussion, and hands-on exercises. Since Git can be quite different than a centralized version control system, Tim and Matthew will map familiar terminology onto Git’s more collaborative version control vocabulary and put each new term into practice with demos and comparisons.
Git is a technology that is best learned through actual use, and at nearly every step of this class you will be typing commands and evaluating what Git is doing both on the surface and at a deep mechanical level. With the mechanics and day-to-day commands introduced, we will advance to discussing Git-facilitated workflow ideas along with practical time-tested tips that will get you on the road to success with this revolutionary source code control system.
