full day of training - 10:00 - 17:00
Bring your laptops and if you can, get git installed beforehand; this is a practical, hands-on session. The first part of the day will focus entirely on using git itself, looking at how we can manage changes to a local codebase and keep track of those. We'll then move on to talk about the distributed nature of git, using GitHub to share changes with one another and to illustrate how teams can collaborate.
You will learn the difference between a branch and a fork, and when to use each one. We'll talk about using pull requests and code reviews, and how those can form part of a team development process. Finally there will be some case studies of common branching strategies, and discussion of whether these, or something else, could be a great fit for your team. By the end of the day you will be ready to implement git within your team with confidence.
