Introduction to GIT

Git has quickly become the most popular version control system for new projects. It is open source, distributed, and has a rich set of modern features unseen in previous version control systems like Subversion, Mercurial or Microsoft TFS.

However, many team jump into Git without understanding proper practices in version control, or how workflows in distributed version control differ from those in centralized version control.
