Since my articles on Git Rebase seem to be grabbing a lot of attention since the day 1, I thought of writing another article on Git Merge. If you don’t know how to rebase in Git, please check my last article on Git Rebase.
Merge is a command used in Git to move the changes in branch to another. Usually, the new features are developed in the dev branch and merged into the master branch after finishing the development. All the changes in the dev branch is added to the master branch on the merge. but the dev branch will be unaffected.

Let’s do a Git Merge step by step to understand how it works. Except the merging part, many steps from cloning the repo to publishing the changes will be the same as in Git Rebase Tutorial because we are trying to do the same thing in a different way.
Step 1: Fork and clone the desired repo
Let’s reuse our rebase-demo repository for this. Go to https://github.com/kdanW/rebase-workflow-demo and click the button ‘Fork’ in the top right-hand corner. Now go to your forked repo, click ‘Clone or Download’ button and copy the link shown.
Now go to a directory of your preference and type the following command on the terminal to download the repo into your local PC.
git clone https://github.com/<YOUR_USERNAME>/rebase-workflow-demo
GitHub Workflow will give you an insight into what is a workflow and the differences between Git Flow and GitHub flow. Also, you will understand the minor and major issues with Git Flow. Finally, you will learn the steps of the most optimal GitHub flow and conclude the session by discussing the importance of GitHub.
In this article we’ll be discussing git merge and git rebasecommands and when we should use them. git rebasedoes the same job as a git mergethat is merging the changes from one branch to another branch. The difference is that they do it very differently.
In this article, I will explain to you a few differences between git merge, git rebase, and the git interactive rebase.I will tell a bit about what pros...
In today's video, we are doing to learn about what is GIT & Github and why should we use them. Git is a distributed version control system for tracking changes in source code during software development.
Naz talks about the differences and similarities between Git and Github. A very common question amongst the programming community. Let's settle this once and for all.
