Hi Thom,

I am currently working on a Java Project for my final year in my Computer BSc Honours Degree and one of the requirements is that I share my project with my supervisor using GIT. How do I master this ? I thought I had set it up but can't see my project on github. :-( I desperately need to master this in the next few weeks.

Have you used the tutorial on GIT - it's what I used to help me learn how to use it :

It takes a day or so to get used to it!

Hi Caroline. Thanks for posting the question.

There is no simple answer to your broad question and this forum does not provide sufficient space to offer a detailed reply.
I can, however, offer a few excellent resources:

[*] Code School has a great little module to get you started
[*] The Pro-Git book is in its Second Edition and has become the de-facto BIBLE
[*] I am obliged to point out that Packt Publishing has some excellent resources on the subject

And, in the vein of "Shameless Self-Promotion", there is an e-book I created for Learnable (I think it is free) that was intended to introduce ANYONE (even non-developers) to using Git

I strongly encourage you to take the time to understand Git. It may seem a bit strange and archaic at first. Actually, it IS a bit strange and archaic. But there is an amazing wealth of information about Git (search YouTube for presentations by the training team at GitHub) and plenty of projects in Open Source for you to use to practice!

Best of luck in your pursuit of a Computer Science degree.

Anything worth doing well is worth doing poorly first. Just look at this tiny ad:
