Git, is the most popular version control system and having this tool in your toolbelt is crucial if you practice software development professionally.

It may be intimidating to work with a command line tool. But in this course, we will practice a lot and will learn the commands in meaningful use cases. In the end of this course, you won’t be having the fear of making mistake when working with git.

We will learn how do we

  • track or untrack files
  • commit changes to local repository
  • check local change history
  • reset our changes
  • undo commits
  • create and use branch
  • syncronize branches with rebase and merge
  • cherry-pick commit from one branch to another
  • create tags to mark our commits with custom names

We will practice the commands for tracking files or untracking a file, and we will practice branching and we will see how we can syncronize our branches with the commands like merge or rebase.

We will be using Github as remote repository. We will see how do we

  • configure Github to protect branches
  • create issues
  • link issues to commits
  • create pull requests
  • resolve conflicts

All major workflows are visualized by both in real practices and on graph to make sure nothing will be left vague and unclear in your mind.

By following each step in this course, you will be creating a git cheat sheet for yourself in the end.
