Learn the fundamental concepts behind the Git version control system. Practice how to create, manipulate and share Git repositories with hands-on lab exercises.

Course Description

Developing with Git introduces the distributed development version control system that originated with the Linux kernel development community and is now used on an ever increasing number of projects. Students will rapidly come up to speed on Git concepts, basic commands, and how it is used in everyday work.

Upon mastering the material you will have a basic understanding of:

  • How Git compares with other revision control systems and what concepts need to be grasped when using Git.
  • Methods of creating new repositories or cloning already existing ones.
  • How to commit new changes, review revision histories, and examine differences with older versions.
  • How to work with different branches, merge repositories and work with a distributed development team.

Extensive hands-on exercises and demonstrations are designed to give you the necessary tools to use the essential features of Git.

Why Choose Linux Foundation Training

There are many reasons to choose Linux Foundation Training:

  1. The Linux Foundation is the non-profit organization that hosts the Linux project, employs Linux creator Linus Torvalds and hosts kernel.org (where all Linux kernel updates are released). With 100+ employees (and growing!) across North America, Europe and Asia, we partner with clients for the long run.
  2. Being so close to the kernel, we are constantly updating our training to ensure that we are teaching you the most up-to-date information.
  3. Linux Foundation Training is unique in that all our training courses are designed to work on all major Linux distributions (including RedHat, Ubuntu and SUSE).
  4. We don't sell any software or support services so there's no hidden sales agenda in our material. Our only goal is to help you learn the material.
  5. When you train with The Linux Foundation, you're learning from instructors who are comfortable across all major Linux distributions and can answer student questions regardless of the distribution you're using for the class. You are truly learning from the experts.

Audience

The class is designed for developers who are familiar with Linux, but are new to Git. You'll need superuser privileges only to install Git on your system if it is not already installed.

Students on non-Linux systems can also take this course as long as Git can be installed on their system; e.g., versions for Windows can be installed at no cost and work well. While this is discussed in class, installing previous to class is advised to save time.

Prerequisites

  • Be familiar with basic Linux (UNIX) utilities, such as ls, rm, grep, tar etc.
  • Be comfortable using any of the available text editors (e.g. emacs, vi).
  • Experience with any major Linux distribution is helpful but not strictly required, and as noted earlier, this course can be taken on any operating system that can have git installed.
