One of my favorite jobs here at Seiden Group is to introduce developers to the Git version control system. I’ve delivered talks, workshops, and individual Git training.
Fast, popular, and open source, Git can be hosted on varied platforms, such as cloud-based repositories (Github, Bitbucket), internal servers (GitLab), and on our trusty IBM i servers.
To help beginners learn Git commands, I recommend these resources:
- Quick hands-on introduction:
- Games that add fun to learning Git:
- Laracasts cover many developer topics, a great deal at $7/month. Their Git tutorial:
- I also use graphical Git tools, which are easier to learn than the commands. I’ll discuss those in a future post.
