Pragmatic Version Control Using Git

by Travis Swicegood

There’s a change in the air. High-profile projects such as the Linux Kernel, Mozilla, Gnome, and Ruby
on Rails are now using Distributed Version Control Systems (DVCS) instead of the old stand-bys of CVS or Subversion.

Git is a modern, fast DVCS. But understanding how it fits into your
development can be a daunting task without an introduction to the new
concepts. Whether you’re just starting out as a professional programmer
or are an old hand, this book will get you started using Git in this new
distributed world.
