Learn git concepts not commands
About the Book
"Do you get confused about how git works or what commands to use?"
"Learning git is just as important as learning any programming language"
Git is a fundamental skill for both newbie and skilled programmers. However, most software developers use git by rote memory, without any deep understanding of how it really works under the hood and this is because they learned Git the wrong way.
This guide explains core git concepts, breaking them down into easily digestible bites in an illustrated, easy to follow style that anyone from kids to adults can understand. Removing any confusion of how Git really works.
I am guaranteeing that you will come away with a concrete understanding of how git works. Since I am so sure of the value of this guide, I am offering you a 100%, no-risk, no-questions-asked, money-back refund if you aren't satisfied.
