Git for Dummies - Installing on Linux

Git for Dummies - Installing Git on Mac OSX

Source Control

As I mentioned in my last entry, Git for Dummies - Installing Git on Windows, this is the beginning of a Git for Dummies Series, where I'll help walk you through installing Git and how to get started using Git from the command line. Later on, we can look at some of the GUI and Web tools, and see what they offer you.

Lets git to it.

Git for Dummies - Installing Git on Windows

Source Control

Here is the first entry in my series of Git for Dummies. Git is not new, its been around for a while, so there are command line, gui, and web tools... to show how to get started, I'm going to show you how to use Git from the command line (yes, even on windows), and then later, we can look at some of the good GUI tools, and all the power they can provide.

First things first… go to git-scm.com and download the version for your OS, in this case, its windows.

I had heard about lots of best practices… but living in my bubble, they were muffled, and almost sounded like a different language. This year, I decided to burst my bubble and get out, and now I'm free of my bubble, there are a lot of things I can finally understand, and implement, and one of those best practices I needed to implement, shamefully I must say, is Source / Version control
