As a absolute beginner with Git I was searching for a good introduction for this software and I found 'Try Git' and I liked very much, so I decided to follow with Git Real 1 and it works for me. Anyway, I personally would add a final project to work with a real git server following a script where the student have to show snapshots of results. Well, in a few day I shall begin Git Real 2.

This really helped my get a much better understanding of git, that I was not getting from other online resources. Thank you very much.


Well explained, diagrams definitely help to visualise the conflict situation. All examples provide useful practice for managing your git repo and get a gentle start on collaborative work. Would love to see more on git flow in the future. Alex
