Git Advanced (1/2 Day Workshop)
Many Git classes successfully focus on the basics for those new to DVCS. However, with Git having 7 years on the street now, there is a growing desire to address the maturing users of this innovative DVCS. This class will take existing Git users and bring them to a heightened level of productivity by leveraging Git's powerful, yet under-used advanced features.
Git has established itself as an important new version control system and many progressive developers have already moved to this exciting system. After a few months of using the basics, passionate developers may begin to wonder what advanced features Git has to offer. These advanced Git usages are scarcely documented, and for the first time in a live class, they are demonstrated in an easy-to-grasp form with the use case, operation, and behavior all thoroughly explained.
Prerequisite: Students must have used Git use in the workplace for several months before attending this talk in addition to setting up Git according to http://teach.github.com/articles/github-class-prerequisites/
