In Detail

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.

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.

Biographie de l'auteur

Ravishankar Somasundaram

Ravishankar Somasundaram has over 6 years of techno-functional experience in providing solutions to clients across multiple sectors and domains. 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.

Ce livre présente les bases de Git a ceux qui ont besoin de travailler avec plusieurs versions de fichiers.

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".

HASH(0x9e1c6540) étoiles sur 5 Perfect for Git beginners 28 février 2013
Par JavaGrrl - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
If you want to learn Git, but don't know where to begin or have found other books too advanced, then look no further. This book takes baby steps in teaching Git, which is a nice change of pace from other books that breeze through the fundamentals or assume the reader has a technical background. As someone who had very little experience with SCM (i.e. I have used subversion only a couple times) and was interested in learning (and actually understanding!) Git, I found other books on Git a little too advanced for my level (which can be a little discouraging when you are learning a new technology). What those books either glossed over or covered way too technically, this book goes through step-by-step, with jargon kept at a minimum. Actually, the author is kind of funny in a few places, which was a pleasant surprise. One aspect of the book I thought was particularly helpful was that the author explained how to accomplish each and every task for both GUI (graphical user interface) and CLI (command line) users. Other books I have bought on Git focus only using the CLI. The book itself is brief; I finished it in a couple of days of casual reading. Even though it's brief, it has good breadth, covering the most basic aspects of Git to more intermediate features in the later chapters. Having finished the book, I feel ready to re-attempt the more advanced books I have.

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.

HASH(0x9e1c6594) étoiles sur 5 Good introduction for beginners but others will probably be disappointed 29 juillet 2014

Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
If you're not familiar with using a version control system and you're primarily working on MS-Windows this book is for you (and deserves at least one extra star in that case). But if you have any experience or will be working on a UNIX based OS such as Linux or Mac OS X you'll probably find "Pro Git" more satisfying.

HASH(0x9e1c6870) étoiles sur 5 Git: Version Control for Everyone - Forever changes the way you handle digital files!! 27 avril 2013
Par M Palani - Publié sur
Format: Broché
The book presents a fresh look at GIT and presents in a way that even beginners could understand. The author has been a bit of tongue-in-cheek humor to suggest that these topics can be presented in a friendly and easier-to-read format (step-by-step example and illustrative screenshots)

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
HASH(0x9e1c6d98) étoiles sur 5 Yet another perfect "get started" book from Packt 22 février 2013
Par Alan Fahrner - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
After deciding to do a significant overhaul of a web site I've worked on since 1998 (including my first development of a Wordpress plugin), it seemed that the time was perfect to get the new stuff (and the old stuff I was retaining) into source control. Although JetBrain's PHPStorm made it so I could leverage GitHub with only my general understanding of source control, I wanted a better grasp of its features (and Git's potentials). Thus, I opened up this book...

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 is because they've all been very good. That's why I generally look to Packt when I want to learn something new.

HASH(0x9e1c6db0) étoiles sur 5 Comprehensive and Simple 8 avril 2013
Par Chandrasekar - Publié sur
Format: Broché
In this world of cloud computing and vast data sharing, version controlling is of course an un-ignorable task of each and every project. Yes it is quite challenging too. If you are the one who is facing challenges or someone who is looking to begin with a project, this is for you.

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.
