Research Division Seminar
SMACK 6: Intermediate Git

Dr. Ángel de Vicente

Abstract

Following up on our previous "Git version control system basics" seminar (https://bit.ly/35CCX7k), the focus of this talk will be to learn the features of Git that will allow us to collaborate with other colleagues. For this, the main concepts needed are branch merging (including merges with conflicts), remote repositories and hosted repositories (GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket, etc.). 

Thanks to the distributed structure of Git, collaboration with colleagues can become very efficient (allowing for many different workflows) and it avoids the single point of failure of centralized version control systems, but its complexity also goes up. Properly understanding the concept of remote repositories makes collaboration with Git straightforward.

Other Git features and tools that are not essential, but that will make Git usage much more effective and powerful (like stash, rebase, pull requests, etc.) will be left for a planned "Advanced Git" follow-up talk.
