Git Workshop: Version Control with Git

Introduction to practical Git (GIT-WS1)

The free and open source version control system Git with its distributed workflows enables rapid and flexible development and experimentation. Git allows multiple and independent local branches, even without direct access to the (corporate) mainframe. Nevertheless, centralistic forms of organization are still possible with Git, without giving up the benefits of distributed version control.
