The git source code control system was developed by Linus Torvalds for managing the Linux kernel. But it’s also valuable for managing all kinds of code: libraries, web applications, personal files. Learn the ins and outs quickly with our git tutorial!
Git was built for the modern developer’s workflow. Easy branching, full capability even when offline, and fast operation make other source code management systems feel underpowered compared with git!
Our 60 minutes git tutorial will teach you how to install and use Git. You’ll learn how to create a repository, use branches, and work with remote repositories.
Integration with Subversion is also mentioned briefly.
Also see Scott Chacon’s Git Internals PDF for an in-depth explanation of how Git works under the covers.
