Getting Started with Git for Version Control

Git is the most widely used modern version control system (VCS) in the world. It is commonly used by software developers to maintain a version history of codebases, but Git can be used for any type of file. This session is designed to be an introduction to using Git as a version control system (VCS) for solo use (we will not discuss features that will support collaborative features in Git). If you are seeking a robust way to manage various versions of your, Git may be the answer.

Mac has Git installed by default, but if you have a Windows machine you will need to install Git Bash (https://www.stanleyulili.com/git/how-to-install-git-bash-on-windows/). If you would like to follow along with the demo, please come with Git pre-installed on your machine.

Topics this session will cover include:

  • What version control is
  • What Git and GitHub are
  • Creating a Git repository
  • Tracking chances
  • Branching
  • Ignoring files
  • Exploring old versions
  • Further training and learning opportunities
