Git Version Control Books

Sometimes events occur like buses turning up: not a lot of activity and then suddenly two or three arrive in one go. Well, I can gladly say this applies to quality books on Git.

Several weeks ago I received from Amazon my long awaited copy of "Version Control with Git: Powerful tools and techniques for collaborative software development" by Jon Loeliger. For about £18 and at 328 pages it's fairly good value; it contains a good deal of tutorial style hands-on examples and also the in-depth know-how that one expects from a good technical book. Not bad at all really.

 Today my colleague Amit twittered about another Git book "Pro Git" (Amazon, £19.24) by Scott Chacon and published by Apress. This book is available on-line under the Creative Commons license as well in printed form too. The great feature of this book is that it's been put up on GitHub and then forked and translated into other languages such as German, Chinese, Japanese and Russian. Anyhow, this looks to be another great Git book, and well worth looking at too.

So now there's no excuse for not getting to grips with git - here are a couple of quality text books to help new and experienced uses with daily git usage!
