- A complete beginner's workflow for version control of common documents and content.
- Examples used are from non-techie, day to day computing activities we all engage in.
- Learn through multiple modes readers learn theory to understand the concept and reinforce it by practical tutorials.
- Ideal for users on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X
Git is free software which enables you to maintain different versions of single or multiple directory contents, and allows you to switch back and forth between them at any given point of time. It also allows multiple people to work on the same file collaboratively or in parallel, without being connected to a server or any other centralized system continuously.
This book is a step by step, practical guide, helping you learn the routine of version controlling all your content, every day.
If you are an average computer user who wants to be able to maintain multiple versions of files and folders, or to go back and forth in time with respect to the files content look no further. The workflow explained in this book will benefit anyone, no matter what kind of text or documentation they work on.
This book will also benefit developers, administrators, analysts, architects and anyone else who wishes to perform simultaneous, collaborative work, or work in parallel on the same set of files. Git's advanced features are there to make your life easier.
What you will learn from this book
- Installing and configuring Git on your machine.
- Basic concepts of Git to get started with versioning.
- Sharing and collaboration of files with Git.
- Additional tools which can come in handy.
- Extended operations with Git on text based files.
The book follows a Blended Learning Approach (Learning through multiple modes: Readers learn theory to understand the concept and reinforce it by practically doing it). The new concepts are introduced using examples of common day to day activities for quick realization spread across topics.
Who this book is written for
For the computer literate who want to leverage the advantage of maintaining multiple versions of files/folders to go back and forth in time with respect to the files content.

Being passionate about learning and teaching, he also strongly believes that the sole purpose of learning is to make our minds think in different perspectives, and he facilitates this in his training sessions through a blended learning approach mainly focused on how to "learn to learn".
Junior Scientist: Apart from winning several prizes in science projects in his lower schoolings, he was awarded the title "Junior Scientist" by the committee consisting of people from the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) in an Inter school Science Fest for a model display on Evolution of Airplanes through Aerodynamics. This is one of his childhood achievements.
His final year college project, aimed at eliminating the scenario of English alone being the medium of programming in all programming languages, which restricts people who don't know English from getting into the IT field and implementing their ideas, was selected and funded by MIT NRCFOSS and considered as a landmark.
By early 2010 he was an official third-party developer of Moodle code, one of the seven people from India and the only one from Tamil Nadu. He shares his knowledge by helping people on the Moodle official forum and on IRC. He has also presented a paper in the 9th International Tamil Internet conference on Moodle: For Enhanced Learning which talks about leveraging Modle's capability to expand user base for one of the oldest language known to mankind - Tamil.
Ravi currently leads Thirdware technology solutions efforts on "Next Generation Mobility" by playing with evolving technologies through its trends - predominantly focusing on Enterprise mobility (MEAP segment) as a Senior Technical Analyst heading the R&D division.
Recently he represented his company at an international conference: "Yugma Unleashing the Innovation Potential", with an idea that uses Artificial Intelligence to empower the next generation of enterprise mobile solutions.

Apres la présentation des différents architectures de systèmes de contrôle de version, it décrit l'installation de Git (sur Windows, Mac et Linux), la création du premier repository, jusqu'au premier "commit". Chaque fonction est montrée pas à pas, à la fois avec l'interface graphique et de la ligne de commande. Ensuite il présente quelques commandes utiles avant de rentrer dans le vif du sujet, les modifications concurrentes et les branches et les fusions ("merge"). Le dernier chapitre explique ce qui se passe en coulisse: le contenu dur répertoire .git, et comment fonctionne chacune des fonctions abordés, sans entrer dans trop de détails.
Ce livre est facile et rapide à lire ; on pourrait discuter sur la décision de ne pas présenter, ni même mentionner, certaines fonctions comme la commande 'git diff', qui affiche les changements apportés à un fichier, ou les "stash".

There are people out there who are already experts with Git and do not need to learn the basics...This book is not for those people. However, if you've never used SCM (or Git in particular) or want to start at the basics again, then this book is a great resource.
This book starts with the basics, focusing on user's needs and leading them to solutions gradually which is very welcoming. It is an easy-to-digest method of providing the necessary knowledge in version control for less experienced. The day-to-day examples and analogies makes for interesting reading, no matter what your level of expertise
Git directory is a full-fledged repository with complete history and full revision tracking capabilities, not dependent on network access or a central server. The book begins with installing and configuring of Git. The next couple of chapters explain the main concepts for working with single repository, and in distributed network with a catchy gaming analogy. Finally, the book covers internals of Git commands to those who would like to master the concept
Take this as analogy, chapters 1-7 are for those who would be happy to learn driving a car while chapter 8 is for those who would like to go further in knowing the working of the car engine
The book provides a very thorough introduction to Git: Version Control and does a good job of describing its applicability on daily life situations when dealing with digital files
If you are looking for a comprehensive reference for all Git's features, files, and so on...Ravishankar Somasundaram's "Git: Version Control for Everyone" isn't for you. If however, like me, you want to be able to quickly become proficient with Git's basic commands and actions with a good understanding of what is going on...then this will be a perfect resource. (Now, don't get me wrong, Somasundaram does some deeper dives into aspects of Git.)
This book is a quick read, Somasundaram has a warm writing style, and when you reach the end you'll know a lot more than when you began. Want to get started (and much more) with Git? Buy "Git: Version Control for Everyone."
Two final notes. First, I did receive a review Kindle copy of the book. Second, yes my reviews of Packt books so far have been positive...but that's not because I get review copies...it is because they've all been very good. That's why I generally look to Packt when I want to learn something new.
This book could very well be considered not just as a beginner's guide, but also a programmer's guide to GIT. In this vast spread world, everyone wish to use things in the most familiar way they are used to doing things. This would really make one's job pretty much easy. And, yes this is for folks like you too. Name the operating system and there you have its own interface and solution.
It's not just a solution which lists out just the possibilities; it is one of the most comprehensive solutions provided by the author, with all possible illustrations from a layman's perspective.
Though I have been running as many projects all these years, from a programming perspective, I do consider myself a rookie. I wish to make things as easy as possible and yes I found this as a dependent and a positive solution to the most disorganized case which I am handling now. Thanks to the author Ravishankar, the reviewers and PACKT Publishing for bringing out such a comprehensive, yet the simplest one to understand.
