I’ve been meaning to write about it for a while now, but I’ve never really found the time to do so thoroughly, until now.
Introduction This is a tutorial on the Git version control system. Git is quickly becoming one of the most popular version control systems in use. There are plenty of tutorials on Git already. How is this one different? A Story
Preview Download Free Preview Many have learned the basics of using Git from the PeepCode Git screencast . In this PDF , Scott Chacon goes even further to explain the distributed filesystem behind the popular source code management system. If you’re tired of terse man pages or academic white papers, you’ll enjoy more than four dozen colorful diagrams that clearly explain the complicated inner workings of Git. The first 50 pages explain the storage system that powers Git, and an additional 60 pages go into detail about using Git on a day to day basis.
As a web designer or web developer, you’ve probably heard of Git before, a version control system that has had a swift ascension to ubiquity due in part to GitHub, a social code repository site. If you’d like to learn how to use Git, check out my top 10 favorite Git tutorials for beginners. At the end, you’ll also see a list of other educational Git resources. 1.

Unless you’re a one person web shop with no team to collaborate with, you’ve experienced the frustration that goes along with file sharing. No matter how hard you try, when multiple people are working on a single project without a version control system in place things get chaotic . If you work with developers on the buildout and implementation of websites, the merge between front-end templates and back-end functionality can be a scary black hole. Issues like overwrites, lost files, and the all-too-common “working off a previous version” phenomenon crop up constantly . And once back-end functionality has been put into your templates, you become terrified to touch them for fear of breaking something a developer spent a great deal of time getting to work.
Have you ever worked on a project that was so unwieldy, you were scared to update a file or add a feature? Maybe the problem was that you weren’t using a version control system. In today’s tutorial, we’ll learn the basics of what might possibly be the best VCS in the world: Git . What is Git? Git is a open-source code managemen tool; it was created by Linus Torvalds when he was building the Linux kernel. Because of those roots, it needed to be really fast; that it is, and easy to get the hang of as well.
Git is a version control Swiss army knife. A reliable versatile multipurpose revision control tool whose extraordinary flexibility makes it tricky to learn, let alone master. As Arthur C. Clarke observed, any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. This is a great way to approach Git: newbies can ignore its inner workings and view Git as a gizmo that can amaze friends and infuriate enemies with its wondrous abilities. Rather than go into details, we provide rough instructions for particular effects.
