Pragmatic Version Control Using Git (Pragmatic Starter Kit)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
There's a change in the air. High-profile projects such as the Linux Kernel, Mozilla, Gnome, and Ruby on Rails are now using Distributed Version Control Systems (DVCS) instead of the old stand-bys of CVS or Subversion.
Git is a modern, fast, DVCS. But understanding how it fits into your development can be a daunting task without an introduction to the new concepts. Whether you're just starting out as a professional programmer or are an old hand, this book will get you started using Git in this new distributed world.
Whether you're making the switch from a traditional centralized version control system or are a new programmer just getting started, this book prepares you to start using Git in your everyday programming.
Pragmatic Version Control Using Git starts with an overview of version control systems, and shows how being distributed enables you to work more efficiently in our increasingly mobile society. It then progresses through the basics necessary to get started using Git.
You'll get a thorough overview of how to take advantage of Git. By the time you finish this book you'll have a firm grounding in how to use Git, both by yourself and as part of a team.

The rule doesn’t apply to tools that you should use. You should include the Ant build.xml file but not the entire Ant program. It’s not a hard exception, though. Sometimes storing a copy of Ant or JUnit or some other program in your repository can make sure the entire team is using the same version of the tools you use. These should be stored separately from your project, however. Report erratum this copy is (P1.0 printing, November 2008) 17 W ORKING T REES 1.3 Working Trees So far we’ve
marked as good or bad if text output is more your style. It also comes in handy if you find out later that you’ve made a mistake in marking a commit as either good or bad. To do that, save the output of git bisect log to a file, and then remove all the output after the point of your mistake. Then supply that file as the parameter to git bisect replay
