Git ...not just version control

Git is a powerful version control system that allows developers to track and store changes to their code. It also helps teams collaborate on projects efficiently. With Git, developers can keep track of changes made to their code, revert back to previous versions if needed, and even create branches for different versions of the same project.

In this talk, we’ll take a look at how Git works and how it can be used to manage and track changes to your code.

Here’a are some tips for easy reference:

  1. Use short, descriptive commit messages in present tense
  2. Use branches to isolate changes, branches are FREE and FAST
  3. Add .gitignore to exclude files
  4. Use git stash to save changes temporarily
  5. Use git mv to rename files/folders
  6. Use pull requests to review code
  7. Agree on a flow that works for you and your team
  8. Use git rebase to keep your history clean
