Review: “Version Control with Git” By Jon Loeliger, Matthew McCullough, O’Reilly Media
Git inside out
I started using Git about year and half ago. Through hands-on experience I gained a lot of experience. Recently, I found Version Control with Git available in O’Reilly Blogger Review Program. I decided to dive into this book and learn more about Git. First 3 chapters are light introduction to Git: history, installation and basic use of tool. Chapter 4 covers internals, basic concepts of Git. It gave me better understanding of “hidden” changes made by every command I type. Chapter 6-13 covers essential aspects of Git in everyday work. Following chapters contains more complicated and more interesting stuff Version Control with Git is an awesome book. Authors explain things thoroughly. They also have a good sense of humour and it makes reading much more pleasant. A lot of material presented in book, I learned just by exploring available commands in Git. However, there are many useful tips & tricks. Interactive rebasing is the best thing I found in this book This book showed me more powerful things I can do with Git. I recommend this book everybody who needs great version control system.
