It will help you to understand the usages of Git and will also help in future when you need to do troubleshoot for any issues.

Module 3 : Branching, Merging and Options

Branching, merging and options are very important concepts while using Git. Here, you will learn all about branching, merge and options.

You will also learn how to create branches, merge branch with master and how to configure your repository.

This part will help you to understand different types of operations and their usage.

Module 4 : Rebase Regularly and Interactively

In this section, you will learn about rebasing and interactive rebasing. Rebasing is an operation where you change the base commit of a branch.

It allows you to re-apply commits onto another branch without losing any history.

Interactive rebasing is similar to normal rebasing but there is one difference. In interactive rebasing, you can see the list of commits which are going to be applied on top of the current commit. You can choose whether to apply them or not.

Module 5 : Storing Additional Information in Your repository

In this section, you will learn about storing additional information in your repository. You will learn about adding tags, annotating files, and creating submodules.

These features allow you to store metadata about your project.

Module 6 : Extracting Data from the Repository

In this section, you will learn about extracting data from the repository. This feature helps you to extract specific pieces of information from the repository.

For example, you may want to extract only the latest version of some file from the repository.

Module 7 : Git Hooks, Aliases and Scripts

In this section, you will get to know about hooks, aliases and scripts.

A hook is a script which runs at certain point during the process of committing or pushing changes to the repository.

An alias is used to define a shortcut name for a command.

A script is a program written in shell scripting language (like Perl, Python). You can write a script to automate tasks like running commands automatically after every push or pull.

Module 8 : Repository Maintenance

In this section, you will learn about maintenance of repositories.

You will learn about cleaning up old branches, deleting untracked files, removing orphaned objects and much more.
