Day 8: Git A Life!


The focus of this weeks studies will be Git! Git is by far the most popular Software Version Control System to date, created by Linus Torvalds.  I have been a casual git user for approximately 4 years, when I was introduced to it by The Ruby On Rails Tutorial by Michael Hartl. It wasn’t until now that I have taken it upon myself to properly learn Git conventions and really the Git way of contributing to projects.

For learning Git and it’s intricacies, I’ll be reading The Pragmatic Guide to Git and completing a Git/Github course on Udemy.

Thus far, I am familiar with creating repositories, adding contents to a repo, and committing changes. My understanding of navigating branches and merging is just enough to be dangerous. I look forward to master about Git workflow and contributing to projects on GitHub.
