About the Book

Learn git by doing!  Each section teaches a specific skill or solves a specific problem - and each one includes a practical exercise for you to work through yourself.  This deliberate practice means you will quickly pick up familiarity with all the git commands you need, and be able to use this tool for your own purposes.  The short sections make this book ideal for those who are pushed for time as it can easily fit into short units of time rather than requiring sustained study.

This book assumes nothing, so beginners can begin at the beginning.  More experienced users may choose to jump straight into the sections about rebasing or working with tracking branches - it's totally up to you!
