Version control helps you to track the changes you make in your code over time by taking a snapshot of each file when you edit the code. With the help of TFVC and Git you can easily achieve this. Professional developers need to know Git and TFVC so they can move between projects with ease.

This comprehensive Learning Path is designed to teach you core concepts of version control and to use them with the help of TFVC and Git.

Contents and Overview

This training program includes 2 complete courses, carefully chosen to give you the most comprehensive training possible.

The first course, Version Control with TFVC, will show you how to configure your environment to work more effectively. You’ll go through branching and merging which are the mainstays in many version control systems. Also, understanding which branching strategy to use can be difficult. Explore various branching strategies, and also implement a strategy in TFVC. Lastly, you’ll learn about the branching strategy to work in an organization. Later, we will see how to use it, tracking the changes and merging the changes.

The second course, Version Control with Git, dives into version control using Git. After explaining the difference between centralized and distributed version control, you will be shown how to configure the Git environment. Once you have configured the environment you’ll see how to work with Git in your day to day activities. We will look at what it takes to administer your Git setup. This course ends with setting up the workflows in Git and also see Basic Workflow, Forking Workflow, Feature workflow, open source workflow and Gitflow Workflow.
By the end of this training program, you will be well versed with concepts of version control and will be able to deliver great code using TFVC and Git.
