Conquering Git: Advanced Training Guide
Controlling your projects (small or large) is easier now, owing to the advanced functionalities that Git supplies. It performs fast, is easy to manage, and makes Source Control Management uncomplicated and effortless for you. It will help you implement that perfect workflow you have been looking for.
This course is designed to
be a comprehensive approach to Git, which means no prior knowledge or
experience is required but students will emerge at the end with a very
solid understanding and hands-on experience with Git and related source
control concepts. We’ll then walk through all the foundational commands
needed to start a new project managed by Git, right through to making
commits and including common file operations such as moving and deleting
files. With a strong foundation in place, we explore ways to make
comparisons in Git, including all the different local states, between
commits, and between local and remote repositories. After gaining a
strong foundation in branching and merging, we will then cover more
complex topics such as rebasing, where we cover how to resolve a rebase
Next, you’ll delve into
more intriguing features of Git such as rebase, stash, aliases, and
patches. You will explore several examples of these commands to improve
your efficiency in using Git. Finally, when you have mastered the
various tools provided by Git, you’ll be provided with some suggestions
to help you to move forward with Git.
By the end of the course,
you’ll have a solid understanding of Git and version control so you can
use them in your own projects; perhaps you will be the one providing
answers to others in trouble!
