At the core of working on a project with Git and Visual Studio 2019 is a thorough knowledge of Visual Studio's integrated Git support. In this course, Using Git for Source Control in Visual Studio 2019, you will learn the skills you need to use Git directly in Visual Studio 2019. First, you will learn how to create, push, and clone Git repositories. Next, you will discover how to commit and synchronize changes, and how to resolve merge conflicts. Finally, you will examine how to work with branches and how to create and review pull requests in Visual Studio 2019. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have a foundational knowledge of working with Git in Visual Studio 2019 that will help you as you move forward to work on your projects that use Git as a version control system.
Course Overview (Music) Hi everyone. My name is Thomas Claudius Huber, and welcome to my course, Using Git for Source Control in Visual Studio 2019. I am a software developer and I build applications mainly with Visual Studio and .NET. In this course, you will learn how to use Git for source control in Visual Studio 2019. Git is a very popular distributed version control system. Distributed means that you have a full copy of the repository locally on your machine. This allows you to work locally, and when you are done you synchronize your local repository with a remote repository that you can store, for example, on GitHub or Azure DevOps. You will learn in this course how to use Git in Visual Studio 2019 while building a .NET application in a small team. Some of the major topics that we will cover include creating and cloning Git repositories, committing and pushing changes to a remote repository, working with branches and tags, including matching and rebasing branches, and handling pull requests. By the end of this course, you will know how to use Git in Visual Studio 2019 to track your code changes and to collaborate successfully in a team. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the basics of Git. But as you work in this course on a .NET project in a small team, you should even be able to follow along without any prior Git knowledge. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn about how to use Git in Visual Studio 2019 with the Using Git for Source Control in Visual Studio 2019 course, at Pluralsight.
