How to Git Good: A Primer

Louis Cremen, tappON Part of DW18

What is Git? Who is Git? I’ll do you one better… Why is Git? How do I commit to wrangling this beast? What is a master branch and why do I always feel like a slave? How do I sooth the merge conflicts inside of me and why am I always missing my head? What information will I fetch and cherry pick, and what will I push remotely? Does everyone find it this hard, or do they achieve this with some sort of git flow?

Whether you’re a beginner using a Git GUI (SourceTree, Github Desktop, GitKraken) or an intermediate with a CLI, join Louis (@proxyblue) as we look at the foundations, best practices, cheeky tips and additional resources to help us Git good.
