In Getting Good With Git, Nettuts+ Associate Editor Andrew Burgess will guide you through the sometimes-scary waters of source code management with Git, the fast version control system.

Git's speed, efficiency, and ease-of-use have made it the popular choice in the world of source code managers. And with a service like GitHub available for sharing your code, there's no question about whether learning Git is worth your time!

In this book, Andrew Burgess will take you from knowing nothing about source code management to being able to use Git proficiently. You'll look at why you should use a version control system, why Git is better than the other options, and how to set up and use Git. This book covers some of the advanced features of Git, and includes an appendix of other resources that will take your Git knowledge to the next level. We'll even get to know GitHub!

This book also includes a screencast series that walks you though most of the concepts that the book teaches. With over 2 and a half hours of video, you'll get a solid grounding in Git without much effort.
