Really nice tutorial

His book gives a very nice overview of typical use of git and some hints at more complex features. All command line based so can be used by anyone.

Compact and clear

I'm an intermediate skill git user and found that this book was great for me. I knew most of the concepts in most of the chapters but the writing was compact and clear enough that I read those chapters anyway and I found that it plugged gaps I had in my understanding of how git works.

A small book, explaining the basic concepts of Git VCS. Although I've been using Git for nearly two years, and consider myself a person, who's not afraid to get its hands dirty, it was a really useful read for me. I would recommend it to anyone, who's into programming, and wants to do any kind of software development. Read it early, so you won't have to learn this lessons the hard way.

Skimmed it

Didn’t read it, just skimmed it to get another perspective, particularly on workflow. This looks like it is a very good tutorial. It has good beginner info and some more intermediate info as well.

Perfect tutorial. Model tutorial.

Since this is a free Kindle book, I started reading it with low expectations. However, at the end, despite my limited experience with git, I learned quite a bit from the book; it was rather informative. The book does a good job of describing the basic features of git and how to use them in both centralized and distributed workflows. The greatest feature of the book is the use of marble graphs (as shown on the cover of the book) to illustrate the current status of the local workspace and the repo ...more

I had a little experience with git working with Eclipse but it was much guessing and experimentation till getting the pretending result, This Ryan Hodson guide me step by step to the working and git concepts making it clear how git works and to some degree how it should be used. I strongly recommend it to anyone starting to use git.

Why didn't they teach me in school

Being through numerous computer science classes at 3 different universities this was never taught adequately in my opinion and should be one of the very first things a freshman learns, before any real programming begins.

Nice and easy book to read, goes through the basics at the start and spent one chapter on the inner workings of git. I've used git for a while now and I can say I've never really wondered how git handles stuff until this book shed the light. I would say it's a book worth gitting.

A good git book!

Well written,easy to understand, very practical. For the example, too much web design. If possible,talk more about collaboration with git please.

Short and sweet, with a lot of examples. Doesn't really get much better than this. After reading this book, then you should probably have a lot of practice with it.

quite good

A light and friendly introduction to Git and its services. Recommended as a refresher for intermediate users like myself, as well as an introduction to brand new users.

Clear explanations that made it all seem simple.

Takes the subject and breaks it down into logical pieces helping you understand it as a whole. Best treatment I've seen.

Recommends it for: people-new-to-git, people-want-to-learn-git-systematically
Shelves: read-in-2016
This ebook can be downloaded from kindle store by free, but this book is definitely more valuable than many paid books.
