In this Git and Github series, we will learn a complete branching in Git and Github. There is no need to watch any other video after this.
IT is in no way different from any other sector when it comes to naming. You would see some systems being named based on their origin while others are named keeping in mind their features or functionality. Then there are some whose names have nothing in common with their origin, features, or anything else related to them.
It is these inconsistencies in naming conventions that make people confused about what a system is all about, what it does, and what benefits it offers. For instance, there are a lot of people out there who still get puzzled when asked about Git and GitHub and whether or not there is a difference between the two.
The similarity in their names has nothing to do with what they really are. They are two altogether different things. But at the same time, you can say that they still have a thing or two in common. Before we talk about Git and GitHub, let us first shed some light on version control systems (VCSs) and why are they so important.
In simple terms, version control is nothing but a system that keeps track of the changes made to source code or files. With a version control system, you can look back at the changes made to a particular file, either by you or another person, by accessing the version control database. This system gives you the ability to compare different versions of a file, thus allowing you to stay informed about the changes that have happened over a period of time.
The version control system can be referred to as a database that stores snapshots of different files in a project. These snapshots are taken every time a file is modified. It maintains all the records of the different versions of a file. In addition to comparing different versions of a file, VCSs also allows you to switch between them. VCSs can either be distributed or centralized. Let us see how these two types differ.
Centralized version control systems use a single, centralized server to store all the different versions of a file. Users can access these files by gaining access to this centralized server. Now, there is a disadvantage associated with this type of VCS. If the central server fails to function due to any reason, the entire history stored on its will be gone and no one will be able to recover any version/versions of the lost files.
Distributed version control systems have an edge over their centralized counterparts. These VCSs store file versions in two locations – the centralized server and your local machine. So, the disadvantage that we discussed centralized systems doesn’t exist in distributed systems.
Even if the server undergoes failure, you can retrieve all the different versions of your files from your local machine. Suppose you have a file, which is called VersionControl1. Now you made several changes to this file and saved the changes on each occasion. All the changes that you made to this file will be stored in the VCS, which will have all those versions of this file when you made changes to it.

Git has become ubiquitous as the preferred version control system (VCS) used by developers. Using Git adds immense value especially for engineering teams where several developers work together since it becomes critical to have a system of integrating everyone’s code reliably.
But with every powerful tool, especially one that involves collaboration with others, it is better to establish conventions to follow lest we shoot ourselves in the foot.
At DeepSource, we’ve put together some guiding principles for our own team that make working with a VCS like Git easier. Here are 5 simple rules you can follow:
Oftentimes programmers working on something get sidetracked into doing too many things when working on one particular thing — like when you are trying to fix one particular bug and you spot another one, and you can’t resist the urge to fix that as well. And another one. Soon, it snowballs and you end up with so many changes all going together in one commit.
This is problematic, and it is better to keep commits as small and focused as possible for many reasons, including:
Additionally, it helps you mentally parse changes you’ve made using

It is good practice to create git branches to code on before merging it back into the master branch but did you know that you should also consider deleting those old branches?
I was cleaning up my code when it crossed my mind on whether it’s ok to reuse a git branch after merging it in with the master.
In my quest for a clear answer it turned out that I needed a better understanding of some key concepts like: Git, commits, branches and so on.
It’s a version control system for source code management where each copy or repo of the code has the full history of commits and changes.
Basically, you can work on multiple versions of a project each with their own branch. Imagine several branches running parallel to each other.

#git #git-merge #coding #git-commands #git-branch
t its core, the branching model offered by Git is intended to help you avoid merging unstable code into the main codebase. Working with branches in Git is a breeze, especially if you’re working with the [GitKraken] Git client to visualize your repository.
To delete a local branch in Git using the terminal, you’re going to run the git branch command and pass in the -d flag. Next, you will pass in the name of the branch you wish to delete.
It’s important to note Git does not allow you to delete a local branch if you have the branch checked out with unmerged changes. This helps prevent you from accidentally losing commit data.

Hello all, nowadays most of the development teams using GIT version control, some of you may have a requirement of mirroring your team’s git changes from one server to another Git server. This article will help you to achieve the Git mirroring between one server to another server.
I got one assignment wherein there will be 2 Git Servers, development will happen in one Git server and the changes should be synchronized to another Git server at regular intervals. But in my case, the complexity is both the servers are in different restricted network. So I have done the small experiment and it worked. And I am sharing the steps to you all in this article.
Main GIT Server: Let’s take our main git server is located in our office and can be accessed only in-office network.
**Mirror GIT Server: **The mirror server is located at the vendor/client-side, which can be accessible in a normal internet connection but not with our office network. Since the office proxy will block the outside URL’s.
