0:03 Hey there, welcome to 'Up and running with git a pragmatic approach'.
0:08 Now, in this course, I'm not here to tell you about how intense git
0:12 can be or how tricky it can be or try to impress you with the edge
0:16 cases of auto squashing. What the heck is that?
0:21 We're here to learn, git to make you productive in your day to day work
0:26 and as the title says, we're going to take a really pragmatic approach.
0:30 We're going to focus on understanding and using,
0:33 git from the tools that you already have present.
0:36 Are you using a modern editor?
0:38 Guess what? It probably has amazing,
0:39 git features built right into it,
0:41 why not use those instead of forcing you to learn git through the terminal?
0:46 There's some amazing desktop applications that give you greater visibility,
0:50 massively greater visibility into the state of your github repo you don't have to stay on
0:55 the terminal and do all those things.
0:57 So many courses will take a least common denominator approach and try to teach you git
1:03 through the terminal, that's not what this is about.
1:06 This is a real world pragmatic approach that is very practical for beginners because we use
1:12 tools that are there to help you understand what you can do and how things fit
1:15 together. And yet this of course is also very relevant to professionals who just want
1:20 to be more effective and be more confident with git.
1:23 So I'm happy to have you here, so let's get going.
