This is fast Git and GitHub Crash Course that will give you basic understanding of the Git and GitHub. Also using several practice activities you will practice core Git and GitHub feature like committing changes, pushing to the remote and merging branches.
We will start by installing Git and initializing new Git repository. You will learn that Git has 4 types of objects: blobs, trees, commits and annotated tags. Each object has unique SHA1 hash. Also all objects are stored in the folders. Every object has just single reference to it – SHA1 hash. Files are stored in blobs. Filenames are stored in other Git objects called trees.
You will learn how to make changes, stage them and commit afterwards. Also you will learn and practice how to observe commits tree and checkout different commits to “travel in time” between different states of the Git repository.
