Commandline & Git Basics

We'll go over the basics of how the command prompt works and how to use git from the commandline to track local and remote changes to code. Time permitting, we'll cover some useful tips&tricks, show how to resolve git conflicts like a pro, and even deploy an application to the cloud directly from the commandline.

The more comfortable you get with linux, the command line, and bash, the easier time you'll have developing for pretty much every open source language and framework out there. You can even run these tools on Windows inside a cygwin or mingw shell.

While you're perfectly welcome to use an IDE to manage tasks like launching a web server, running tests, or finding where a specific variable is mentioned in code, understanding how this can be accomplished via commandline tools will make you more of a power user, and free you from being stuck to any specific IDE.
