Is there an advanced course for Git

Version management with Git

Seminar description

With the practical application of a distributed version management system like git, it quickly becomes clear that not only the available commands and functions are new. This break with traditional concepts opens up new approaches, especially in the areas of workflows and best practices.
The seminar gives an introduction and introduces the participants to the typical Git working methods. It will also show how your own workflows can be freely defined with Git, which best practices have proven themselves in the enterprise environment and how the existing working methods can be transferred to Git in a meaningful way.

Course content

Introduction to versioning with Git

  • Origin of Git in the context of Linux kernel development
  • Basic terms: repository, commit, tag, branch and merge
  • Importance of release management
  • Comparison with a central approach using the example of Subversion

Versioning files with Git

  • Creation of a repository (Init)
  • Basic version control workflow (add, commit)
  • Investigate changes (log)
  • Creation of development branches (branches, merge) and versions (tags)

Advanced topics

  • Communication between repositories (clone, fetch, pull, push)
  • Implementation of a central repository (bare repository)
  • Extended Git functions (Rebase, Cherry-Pick, Stash, Reflog, Diff)
  • Modify / undo changes (Amend Commit, Revert)
  • Resetting the workspace and development branches (reset)
  • Recurring schemes of various Git commands (Refspecs, version ranges, ...)

Concepts and tooling

  • Git and CVS / Subversion
  • Overview of common graphical clients (Git GUI, Atlassian SourceTree, Eclipse EGit, TortoiseGit)
  • Repository hosting options (GitHub, Bitbucket, Atlassian Bitbucket, Gitblit, Gitolite, ...)
  • Server access via http / https / SSH

Best practices and terminology

  • Separation of concerns
  • Commit early & commit often
  • Topic branches
  • Merge vs. Rebase
  • Up vs down merge
  • Fork vs Branch
  • Pull requests and their management (keyword gatekeeper)
  • Integrate code reviews into the workflow

Gitflow as a branching and workflow concept

  • Tasks of development branches (branching model)
  • Procedure and workflow for implementing changes
  • Tool support (e.g. in SourceTree)

Extended concepts and optimizations

  • Nesting Repositories (Submodules)
  • Structuring of repositories and their optimization
  • Shallow clones
  • Sparse checkouts
  • Git Repository Internals
  • Merge strategies

target group

Developers who want to use the advantages of distributed version management in everyday project work.
