At the most recent Tampa iOS Meetup, someone asked me where they could find some beginner-friendly tutorials and guides for people new to git and version control in general. I promised to post a list of them, and here they are:
- Since the meetup was about iOS development, I should start with this: RayWenderlich.com’s How To Use Git Source Control with Xcode in iOS 7. The article may be a couple of years (and Xcode versions) old, but the version control part of Xcode hasn’t changed much in that time.
- Git beginner’s guide for dummies. A nice, easy-to-read tutorial with a friendly monkey guide.
- git — the simple guide. As it describes itself: “Just a simple guide for getting started with git. No deep shit.”
- Learn enough git to be dangerous. A nice tutorial written by Michael Hartl, whom you may know from his excellent Ruby on Rails tutorials.
