Title

Git: Interactive Visualization

Overview

Students learn from an interactive visual git simulator / game. This activity cover both local (on your laptop) and remote (internet-based code repository) Git functionality.

Prerequisites

Intro to GitHub (Activity) and Work Locally with Git from the Command Line (Activity) or an introductory understanding of what SCM is about, and basic git commands.

Learning Objectives After successfully completing this activity, the learner should be able to:
  • Create and checkout a branch.
  • Create and checkout a tag.
  • Merge a branch into another.
  • Rebase a branch onto another.
  • Cherry-pick commits.
  • Use relative commit references to refer to commits.
  • Move branches to a different commit.
  • Detach and move around HEAD.
  • Explain the difference between a branch, a tag, and HEAD.
  • Clone a remote repository.
  • Fetch changes from a remote repository.
  • Merge changes from a remote repository.
  • Rebase changes from a remote repository.
  • Describe the difference between _rebase_ and _merge_.
  • Push changes into a remote repository.
  • Describe the relationship between `git fetch`, `git merge`, and `git pull`
  • Describe the relationship between `git fetch` and `git push`.
  • Delete a remote branch.
  • Push changes into a remote repository after remote history has diverged.

Suggestions to Open Source Mentors

Suggestions for an open source community member who is working in conjunction with the instructor.

  • Mentors might show what websites and resources (Stackoverflow, IRC, etc) they often utilize when they are stuck or something unexpected happens upon committing or branching.
    • What troubleshooting steps do they use in their head?
    • Do they chat or talk to fellow project-members or work colleagues?
