We started by defining Git and explaining its importance. Git is a distributed version control system that allows you to manage your codebase and track changes made to it over time. We also covered some of the basic Git concepts, including repositories, commits, branches, and merges.
We explained how to install Git and configure it for use on your computer. Setting up Git is essential before you can start using it to manage your code.
We covered some of the most basic Git commands, including initializing a repository, adding and committing files, viewing commit history, creating and switching branches, and merging branches.
We explained how to work with remote repositories, including cloning a remote repository, pushing changes to a remote repository, and pulling changes from a remote repository.
We covered some of the more advanced Git commands, including reverting changes, resolving merge conflicts, rebasing, and tagging.
We explained the different Git workflows you might encounter, including the centralized workflow, feature branch workflow, Gitflow workflow, and forking workflow. Understanding these workflows is essential for collaborating effectively with others using Git.
We discussed some best practices for using Git, including commit message conventions, branch naming conventions, keeping repositories clean, and collaborating effectively with others.
We introduced some of the most popular Git hosting platforms, including GitHub, GitLab, and Bitbucket. These platforms provide tools for managing your code, collaborating with others, and hosting your code online.
We covered some of the most popular Git tools and integrations, including Git GUI clients, Git command-line tools, and integrated development environment (IDE) integrations.
