Synopsis:

Controlling different versions of files is an efficient process with Git, and this book makes it a snap to learn too! A practical tutorial, it hard-wires the lessons through hands-on exercises throughout the course.

Overview

  • Examples used are from non-techie, day to day computing activities we all engage in.
  • Learn through multiple modes – readers learn theory to understand the concept and reinforce it by practical tutorials.
  • Ideal for users on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X

In Detail

Git – is free software which enables you to maintain different versions of single or multiple directory contents, and allows you to switch back and forth between them at any given point of time. It also allows multiple people to work on the same file collaboratively or in parallel, without being connected to a server or any other centralized system continuously.

This book is a step by step, practical guide, helping you learn the routine of version controlling all your content, every day.

If you are an average computer user who wants to be able to maintain multiple versions of files and folders, or to go back and forth in time with respect to the files content – look no further. The workflow explained in this book will benefit anyone, no matter what kind of text or documentation they work on.

This book will also benefit developers, administrators, analysts, architects and anyone else who wishes to perform simultaneous, collaborative work, or work in parallel on the same set of files. Git's advanced features are there to make your life easier.

About the Author:

Ravishankar Somasundaram

Ravishankar Somasundaram has over 6 years of techno-functional experience in providing solutions to clients across multiple sectors and domains. Being passionate about learning and teaching, he also strongly believes that the sole purpose of learning is to make our minds think in different perspectives, and he facilitates this in his training sessions through a blended learning approach mainly focused on how to "learn to learn".

Junior Scientist: Apart from winning several prizes in science projects in his lower schoolings, he was awarded the title "Junior Scientist" by the committee consisting of people from the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) in an Inter school Science Fest for a model display on Evolution of Airplanes through Aerodynamics. This is one of his childhood achievements.

His final year college project, aimed at eliminating the scenario of English alone being the medium of programming in all programming languages, which restricts people who don't know English from getting into the IT field and implementing their ideas, was selected and funded by MIT NRCFOSS and considered as a landmark.

By early 2010 he was an official third-party developer of Moodle code, one of the seven people from India and the only one from Tamil Nadu. He shares his knowledge by helping people on the Moodle official forum and on IRC. He has also presented a paper in the 9th International Tamil Internet conference on Moodle: For Enhanced Learning which talks about leveraging Modle's capability to expand user base for one of the oldest language known to mankind - Tamil.

Ravi currently leads Thirdware technology solutions efforts on "Next Generation Mobility" by playing with evolving technologies through its trends - predominantly focusing on Enterprise mobility (MEAP segment) as a Senior Technical Analyst heading the R&D division.

Recently he represented his company at an international conference: "Yugma – Unleashing the Innovation Potential", with an idea that uses Artificial Intelligence to empower the next generation of enterprise mobile solutions.
