Introduction to Git

In the last several years, distributed version control has revolutionized the way we do development. Among the various DVCS offerings, Git is a popular, flexible and advanced open-source tool that increases team productivity as less time is spent on merge conflicts and branching becomes painless.

This course covers how to practically use Git, while also providing a solid foundation for how Git works under the hood. Abandon your CVS pushbike and board your new Git helicopter!
