5/16/12 - Rob Richardson

Thinking in GIT

Have you ever looked at Git because it was trendy, but stumbled away dazed? Git isn't your father's source control system, but most of your knowledge of TFS, SVN, or other source control systems transfer over just fine. We'll take your existing knowledge of your Commit / Update VCS and we'll layer in the methodologies, tools, and communities that Git uses. What's the difference between pull and update? Isn't branching and merging dangerous? Can I get colored icons in Windows or Visual Studio? How do I contribute to a GitHub project? We'll graph Git's actions in blocks and compare it to git command results. You'll come away thinking in Git, ready to easily leverage the additional power.
