I started reading the first edition of Pro Git, which was released in 2006. Then, after grabbing the link for this blog post, I found out that they put out a revised version of the book this year. Now I’m picking up on that new edition.
I have to admit that I’m not a tremendous fan of Git. If I had to choose, I’d pick Mercurial over Git; nevertheless, most people don’t think this way, and so I’ve decided to learn Git to keep up. This book has given me a nice start on that goal, and given that the eBook is totally free, there’s no reason not to check it out. If you want to get a paperback copy, you’re in luck: the second edition is out today.
