Book Description

Git is a powerful versioning system. It is fast and logical, and helps developers to work with a team efficiently. The command set and learning curve of Git are pretty similar to and even better than any other SCM, and therefore it is comparatively easier to learn.

Starting with the basic Git commands, this book will take you on a journey to explore all the features of Git and provide you with a way to integrate Git in a team to set up Agile methods and Continuous Integration.

The book covers how to create and manage a repository on Git before moving on to explain the best practices to work with other developers as a team. It provides descriptions of Git's features, such as applying patch, using submodules, migrating from SVN, hooks, and cherry pick.

This book is invaluable to anyone who wants a thorough reference guide to go back to every time they have questions about any feature of Git.
