Want to learn Git / improve your Git knowledge?

Want to learn Git / improve your Git knowledge?

This list is culled from a thread where people were asking for useful resources when learning Git. A lot of useful recommendations were made, so I’m summarising them here (for my own benefit as much as anything):

I ran a git workshop for some devs earlier this year – I created a repo, a bunch of exercises and some top tips. Everything you need to find your way around should be in the readme: https://github.com/claresudbery/Git-Playground

I find it very helpful to understand what the definition of a branch is: it’s just a commit, which defines the current head of the branch …and that allows you to explain the concept of “detached head”.

I would also encourage people to dig a little into the gitconfig folder and understand what diffs and commit IDs are all about.
