This course is designed to be a crash course. which means elementary knowledge of Git is necessary.
Course Introduction provides an introduction to this course and sets the expectancy of what will be learned.
Quick Start a very quick, hands-on introduction to Git. We start off by signing in to Gitlab, creating a repository there, making a local copy to our computer, local changes to our files and then updating Gitlab with our changes.
In Comparisons, we walk through how to compare branches, including all the different local states, between commits, and between local and remote repositories, and what Git alias is.
In Branching and Merging . We learn about branching basics, have a challenge, and move on to fast forward merging and resolving Git conflicts.
With a strong foundation in branching and merging, we will then cover a more complex topic, Rebasing. In that section, we cover several rebasing examples, including what rebase is, how its used, and the differences between the rebases.
In the Stashing section, we learn about what stashing is and how to use it and more importantly, when to use it!
Finally, in the Annotated vs Lightweight tags we learn about what they are, why they are used for and how to use them.
This course has challenges and solutions, so get ready to work!
