Version Control with Git

Before we continue with an example in the next chapter, we want to take some time to truly get to know Git. Git is an invaluable tool in your tool belt. It helps you and your team to share code, check out each others code, revert to previous code, and keep different versions of the same code side by side. In this chapter, we are going to explore these issues and learn how to make the most of it using Jenkins.

For some really in-depth Git reading, I recommend the book Pro Git, which you can read for free at the Git website, With almost 600 pages, this is the absolute Git bible. For some practical use, just keep on reading.
