Learn how to use the branching, merging, and remote features of Git for code management and collaboration.
- [Kevin] The Git source code manager is a powerful tool for tracking changes in your development projects. Three of Git's most powerful features are branching, merging and remotes. Branching and merging allow new features and experiments to be developed without impacting the main project code. Remotes allow many developers to collaborate on the same project. In this course, we will learn how to get the most out of each of these features. We will discuss the big picture concepts, as well as walk through step-by-step examples. Along the way, I'll share best practices and give you advice for using these techniques in real world situations. I'm Kevin Skoglund. I'm a web developer who's been writing code for over 15 years, and I've been using Git for over 10 years. Git has helped me to manage complex projects and to collaborate with other developers. Git is designed to make experimentation and collaboration easy. It doesn't matter if your goal is to manage the code in your own projects, to collaborate with other developers on their projects or to join and contribute to opensource projects. These Git features are essential skills to learn and master. Let's get started learning about branches, merges and remotes.
