Did it, and still have no idea wtf I'm doing.
Andrew Burgess has a nice tutorial for those new to Git: https://tutsplus.com/course/git-essentials
Give this link to Frank Chimero... I heard he was having trouble with Git :))))
Nice! Great tutorial. I think you've sold me on Code School too, hehe
I can also recommend the tutorial from git-tower posted a few weeks ago. I'm on the track now and quite positive about it.
I say stay away from git GUI's. If you want to really become marketable, at least as a front end dev, and proficient down the road, learning the command line is huge. It is a great skill to have that will spill over into other areas up and down the web stack.
I've found that most GUI's are buggy and omit important messages especially when troubleshooting.
Git was my gateway into command line. Now I absolutely hate using anything else for large file transfers (wget), copying directories (scp), etc.
However, if you go that route, Tower is the best GUI in my opinion.
I agree. But their tutorial is based on the command line, not the GUI. Git was also for me the gateway to Bash. I now know the basics so I'm happy about that :)
Shweet. Gonna work through this later this week. Started with git a while back, but could do with a re-fresh. Haven't been coding much lately.
I find http://pcottle.github.io/learnGitBranching/ a lot better for learning. The visual representation helps out a lot and it's more in-depth.
