Development Tools Introduction to Git First Commits Introduction

2 Answers

If you want to dive deep into Git, I recommend the Git Basics course. Otherwise, the Introduction to Git course is fine. You can take both, too, if you want.

I was just wondering the same: Should I do:

1) https://teamtreehouse.com/library/introduction-to-git + https://teamtreehouse.com/library/git-branches-and-merging


2) https://teamtreehouse.com/library/git-basics?

Why are there two courses with such a big overlap in content covered? Since I'm tight on time, I really don't want to just do all of them - especially as I've already been using git for a while. Mostly, I'm just keen to see whether there's any nifty things I've been missing that I could add to my sleeve to make life easier, and more specifically to practice branching & merging as I've not had to do much of that due to my previous workplace strongly preferring trunk-based development. (My new place works with branching a lot, hence the need.)

Both of the options seem to meet my needs on the face of it so if anybody is able to make a recommendation I'd be much obliged! :)

Aha! I think I found a good answer to my questions here, thanks to someone else asking one of the instructors: https://teamtreehouse.com/community/introduction-to-git-course-published

Hope it helps others too! :)
