If you've avoided Git and written it off as something the hipster, open-source kids are doing, you're missing out. Come learn what Git is all about and differences between other popular version control systems like TFS and Subversion. We'll walk through how to use Git from the command line and explore the jargon and commands introduced by Git that is likely different from your current version control system. Next, we'll take a look at GUI tools that can simplify working with Git and how we can continue to work from Visual Studio and even TFS integrated with Git. We will also consider the various places you can host your Git repository and the Pro's and Con's of each. Lastly, we'll consider why Git has a promising future, and take a look at the ecosystem that is adopting Git and requiring Git to use their tools.

You will learn:

  • What Git is all about
  • How to use Git and an overview of all of the commands and Git jargon
