This event was watched and reviewed by one of my favorite techies and it was their opinion that this was a useful webcast instead of the more pedantic variety which appear more like a reference manual to a product than a hands-on “howto” type. Highly recommended!
Date: This event took place live on August 20 2009
Presented by: Scott Chacon
Duration: Approximately 60 minutes.
In this webcast, Git evangelist Scott Chacon covers the basics of the Git source control system. He’ll introduce the audience to Git basics: staging and committing snapshots, viewing the commit log, pushing to and pulling from servers, and creating, switching between, and merging branches. Finally he’ll quickly cover a few more advanced features – code annotation, advanced log options and possibly more, time permitting.
