Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Need to learn how to wrap your head around Git, but don't need a lot of hand holding? Grab this book if you're new to Git, not to the world of programming. Git tasks displayed on two-page spreads provide all the context you need, without the extra fluff.

Get up to speed on Git right now with Pragmatic Guide to Git. Task-oriented two-page spreads get you up and running with minimal fuss. Each left-hand page dives into the underlying implementation for each task. The right-hand page contains commands that focus on the task at hand, and cross references to other tasks that are related. You'll find what you need fast.

Git is rapidly becoming the de-facto standard for the open source community. Its excellent merging capabilities, coupled with its speed and relative ease of use, make it an indispensable tool for any developer. New Git users will learn the basic tasks needed to work with Git every day, including working with remote repositories, dealing with branches and tags, exploring the history, and fixing problems when things go wrong. If you're already familiar with Git, this book will be your go-to reference for Git commands and best practices.

You won't find a more practical approach to learning Git than Pragmatic Guide to Git.
