Version Control with Git--New from O'Reilly: Powerful Techniques for Centralized and Distributed Project Management

Sebastopol, CA—Created by Linus Torvalds to manage development of the Linux kernel, Git has become the principal tool for distributed version control. Git permits an infinite variety of methods for development and collaboration, but its flexibility also means that some users don't understand how to use it to their best advantage. In Version Control with Git (O'Reilly, US $34.99), author Jon Loeliger takes readers step-by-step through ways to track, merge, and manage software projects using this highly flexible, open source version control system.

The book offers tutorials on the most effective ways to use Git, as well as friendly yet rigorous advice to help you navigate Git's many functions. With Version Control with Git, you will:

  • Learn how to use Git in several real-world development environments
  • Gain insight into Git's common-use cases, initial tasks, and basic functions
  • Understand how to use Git for both centralized and distributed version control
  • Use Git to manage patches, diffs, merges, and conflicts
  • Acquire advanced techniques such as rebasing, hooks, and ways to handle submodules (subprojects)
  • Learn how to use Git with Subversion

Git has earned the respect of developers around the world. Find out how you can benefit from this amazing tool with Version Control with Git.
