The Refresh your Git blog contains informative videos to help you get the most out of using git. The blog is written by the Visual Studio Code team and is a great resource for Git users.
The video below is a sample of what you can find in the blog. In this video, learn how to create a branch of your project and track the changes you make in there, merge those changes into your main branch, and resolve any merge conflicts that arise.
Get the most out of using Git in Visual Studio Code. These videos, accompanied by a blog post, will get you started using git with VS Code.
Videos: Refresh your Git
Git is a powerful and complicated tool. I’m sure you’ve experienced the frustration of having forgotten how to do something that you once learned how to do, or not knowing about a feature that you’ve never needed before. This blog will help with these problems.
How does it work? Every few weeks, we’ll post a video that shows you how to get the most out of using git. The goal is to make sure that you can always use git as effectively as possible without needing to remember every command by heart. We’re hoping this will also be useful for learning about new features.
To get started, watch this video on “Clearing your working directory.” Then, if you want another refresher, try this video on “Stashing changes.”
In this series of videos we’ll show you how to get the most out of Git for your daily work.
We will go over common development workflows, how to properly work with branches and remotes, how to manage your commits, and much more. The videos are short, so you only need a few minutes to refresh your memory on a certain command.
If you are still new to Git, I’d recommend reading our popular introductory book on Git first.

‘Git’ is like the Swiss Army knife of version control. It can do so much, but it’s initially difficult to become familiar with all the tools available. This series of videos will help you make the most out of your Git experience by showing you how to use different commands to streamline your workflow.
Some useful git commands are:
– git config –global user.name “username”
– git config –global user.email email@example.com
