Lately we see developers transitioning onto teams that take advantage of Git as their source control repository. Many times we hear about how their transition to this tool was difficult or, in listening to their stories, we wonder if they fully understand the tool and how it could really be utilized.
This talk is meant to give developers who are new to Git a complete overview of what it is, how it works, and how you and your team can take advantage of it to streamline your development collaboration.
We will discuss the basics of Git including the most common means of utilizing the tool (yes, command line) and then discuss and demonstrate how development environments like Visual Studio make accessing your Git repo's very easy without the need for a command line (most of the time).
We will also discuss branching, merging, creating stash's and demonstrate when, where, and how you would do these things. We will show you a number of 3rd party tools we frequently use to simplify our lives and we will use so much Git lingo that you will not be able to walk away and not understand at least some of the terminology.
