The concept of “Git” can be intimidating at first…branches, local copies, merging, committing, etc. It isn’t simple when starting out to understand how to use this powerful tool to its full potential. Figuring it out, however, is a must in my opinion! I didn’t know anything about using git before reading about it in the iOS Apprentice book I just finished, but that was just the tip of the iceberg!
There’s a Mac app called Tower (free trial) that wrote an excellent guide to fully understanding how to make the best use of git. The online ebook applies to many free Git management apps as well, so don’t dismiss it because it’s tied to a paid Mac app.
Free ebook: Learn Version Control with Git
Reading through this free online ebook has given me the confidence to start using Git for my iOS app to better protect myself from the frustrations of making a (bad) programming change without version control and having to manually change code back to how it used to be when it worked.
I’m excited to be more experimental and take more risks in my code now!
