Version control is a cryptic yet essential part of a software development team. Git is a distributed version control system that allows collaboration and management of large scale software products (as well as other types of projects). In this series, you will get started with Git. You will be shown how to create a repository, save changes in the repo, link to a remote server (GitHub), and finally a basic collaboration workflow. If you are just getting started in software development or you need to know more about the tools that your team is using, then join us as we 'git' started.
[SOUND] In this series, we're gonna be
taking a look at an introduction to Git.
So Justin, what exactly is Git, and what
are we gonna learn about in this series?
>> So Git is a distributed version control
system that people use to manage not only
which is kind of my forte in this, but
also other creative projects and
I've seen authors use it as
a version control for a book.
And we're gonna see how that differs
from previous version control systems,
such as subversion, and the such.
>> So is this series designed for people
that are very experienced programmers and
use Git a lot, or
is this kind of just the very beginning?
>> The assumption here is
you've never seen Git before.
However, you are kind of familiar
with a Linux-type command line, so
you can follow along with basic Linux
commands on the command line, and
you have some basic computer savvy.
So, you don't have to be an expert, but
you have to have some basic knowledge.
>> Now, a lot of the courses here at
ITPro.TV are certification-based,
while others are just
general technical skills to
help you kind of beef up your
skill set and your knowledge base.
Where does this one fall?
>> So, Peter, you are definitely correct.
There's either knowledge gains or,
And this is a real quick
touch onto the Git toolset,
and certain things such as learning
how to set up Git on our computer.
How to actually start in Git Repo?
How to interact with a Git server?
And collaborate with others
using the Git toolset.
Well, those are some of
the things that we're learning.
Unfortunately, that doesn't
end in a certification.
So if that sounds like something
that you're interested in,
then I look forward to you joining
us in our series of intro to Git.
