Chapter: Course Conclusion
Lecture: Lightning review: git
0:01 We learned how to use source control, including git and the cloud service github,
0:06 in order to track our changes to our files and our projects, as we went along. This is not only useful for going back in case you mess something up,
0:14 but it really allows you to move faster without having to worry about all the things that are changing in your project,
0:20 you just add them to git and it will keep track of everything over time. We learned how to use git's building block commands,
0:26 including git add, commit, status, log, push and pull as the main ones in order to work with our files, add them to the repository and manipulate them.
0:37 These commands are the building blocks that we use in git. Github is the cloud service that stores backups of our git repositories
0:46 and makes it easier for us to collaborate through github issues and pull requests
0:50 with other contractors that we're working with or employees in our business. Again, think about using git and source control
0:59 as something that allows you to move faster, because you are able to collaborate with other people not stepping over each other's changes,
1:06 and you're able to sync up these files on a backup service just in case anything happens to your local machine.
