Attendee prerequisites for this tutorial are listed below.
Matthew McCullough, trainer for GitHub.com, and Tim Berglund, co-presenter of the O’Reilly Git Master Class videos and Mastering Advanced Git videos, will guide you through the fundamentals and a few intermediate elements of Git in three hours of lecture, discussion, and hands-on exercises. Since Git can be quite different than a centralized version control system, Tim and Matthew will map familiar terminology onto Git’s more collaborative version control vocabulary and put each new term into practice with demos and comparisons.
Git is a technology that is best learned through actual use, and at nearly every step of this class you will be typing commands and evaluating what Git is doing both on the surface and at a deep mechanical level. With the mechanics and day-to-day commands introduced, we will proceed to some intermediate Git strategies extracted from our O’Reilly video training classes, including rerere, stash, patch mode resets and rebasing.
In preparation for the Git workshop, please install a command line interface 1.7.x version of Git. Preferably it should be 1.7.10 or higher.
