Learning GIT

Spent a few days learning GIT.

Some links I found:

  1. The GIT user manual from kernel.org  I cloned the git repository for git itself.  Like the description: “Information Manager from Hell”!
  2. The GIT Parable Starts with a good promise, lets see..  It is really clear and easy to read, although I already understood much of it from other sources.  It ends with3 links to good-looking websites with more detail.
  3. Computer scientist’s intro
  4. (update from csi500 web site’s list).

GIT is based on objects located by references. The references are visible as the hashes.

Key concepts: Working tree. Index. Commits. HEAD pointer.

Concepts: Branch (for clarity, named variable pointer to a commit rather than a line of deveopment).
