Using Git and the Command Line

Using Git and the Command Line


Wondering why seemingly everybody is using Git on important web development projects? Git takes snapshots of the state of files when changes are made; it is extremely helpful in reducing risk on web development projects. Additionally, using the command line is increasingly becoming a key part of Drupal development. With the introduction of Composer in Drupal 8, proficiency in the command line is more valuable for Drupal developers than ever.

In this Version Control with Git session, attendees will learn:

  • The basics of using the command line
  • How to install Git
  • When and why using Git is necessary
  • Committing
  • Branching
  • Merging
  • Git workflows as part of an enterprise development team

Intended audience: Developers, Site maintainers, Newbies, Hobbyists

We hope that you will join our proven CLI & Git session. In addition to the presentation, access to a Git repository with practice material will be provided to attendees.
