Collaborating with Git
Crafting Workflows at the Command Line
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: November 2014
Run time: 6 hours 3 minutes

If you’ve previously tried to learn Git but found the structure of the materials to be opaque, too academic, or just plain confusing, this hands-on video course will help you complete the task. Author and educator Emma Jane Hogbin Westby takes an unconventional approach to teaching version control with Git. Rather than start with the commands you’ll be running, she first explains why—and then demonstrates how.

Along the way, you’ll learn several Git hacks to help you be more efficient. And that means navigating Git from the command line. Many people prefer the “convenience” of a GUI, but in the long run, learning commands is quicker and easier than clicking various buttons on a succession of screens.

  • Create a visual map of Git by sketching your own diagrams
  • Use an example project to get started with hosted Git repositories
  • Learn how to upload changes and merge work with branches
  • Work with tags to pinpoint specific commits in the history of your work
  • Find and fix bugs by comparing “working” and “non-working” states
  • Learn how to undo your work with rollbacks and resets
  • Clean up your commit history with rebase
  • Move your sample project from GitLab to GitHub
  • Learn how to collaborate on GitHub and BitBucket

Emma Jane Hogbin Westby has been working as a web developer since 1996 and has been participating in FOSS communities for over a decade. Having written two Drupal books, including Front End Drupal (Prentice Hall), she has been teaching web-based technologies online and in person for over a decade.

      Comments about oreilly Collaborating with Git:

      I am very happy with the course. I finally understand what and how it works. Everything is good and thoroughly explained. I appreciate the explanation of the context before the each parts. It was crucial for me to get the context. I haven't find it in competitive courses. I appretiate it a lot. Emma know very well what things I could have problem sto understand and how to explain it.

        Comments about oreilly Collaborating with Git:

        This is a remarkable course and I highly recommend it. I had a tenuous grasp of git at best. After this video I am now very comfortable with the command line and no longer afraid of sending my repository to repo-hell with the wrong keystroke. I have saved the cost of this video in anti-anxiety meds ten times over.

        Emma's personality puts you at ease and her presentation is clear and conducive to learning and retention. I found the whole experience very pleasant.

        Changed my life and the way I develop. I am looking forward to an expert version of this same video, though this one comes very close.
