Last night I recorded a new episode of my Emerging Tech Talk video podcast (as part of my One Day of Content Creation) where I reviewed the Pragmatic Guide to Git written by Travis Swicegood and published by Pragmatic Programmers in November 2010.
As I note in the video embedded below, I found the book quite useful as a reference and a solid intro to git for people who may have experience with other version control systems and want to come up to speed with git. It is not a tutorial on version control systems, so if you have no experience with VCS’s, you’ll need to read some other book first. (Or watch my earlier ETT episode where I explain version control systems.)
Enjoy the review…
In full disclosure:
- O’Reilly sent me a copy of this book to review, but I would have purchased it anyway since I have a passionate interest in git.
- The links to Amazon.com above use my affiliate code and so if you actually buy the book I will receive a tiny amount of money.
