Master Git in a Day

Lyndsey Padget
Full Day
Application Development
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that git is the most popular source control management in development shops today. And for good reason; its power overshadows tools you may have used in the past, such as Subversion or Team Foundation Server. While most developers and companies know this, making the switch can be painful. It’s all too common to lose code or introduce bugs because of difficulties merging or resolving conflicts. But fear not - by attending this course, you can accelerate your comfort and knowledge with git in just one day. We’ll cover concepts and capabilities as we walk through exercises with real code. We’ll resolve conflicts, squash commits, stomp on other people’s code, fix our mistakes, introduce bugs (and then use git to find them), tag our commits, and more. All exercises will be performed on the command line, so you’ll truly understand what’s happening without the aid of GUI-based tools.
