Getting Started With Git

30th May 2021 - 21 minutes read time

I have been using Git for a number of years and I can remember feeling quite daunted at the complexity of some of the commands I saw on the internet. When I started using Git on a daily basis I soon realised that the basics were quite simple and the complexity only lay further down the road with commands like cherry-pick or rebase.

Whilst Git does sometimes make me scratch my head, it is never as bad as the days of SVN where I would have a notepad of 'fix' commands that I would copy and paste into my terminal to solve random problems. I usually didn't even know what the problems were, just that this command fixed things so I could continue on and not lose work.
