Tech talk: "Undoing Things with Git" 18th of October - Rockstart Office
From 10:00 - 11:00

Git is like an iceberg to most people: they know the basic commands, but miss out on its real powers to become more
productive and reduce mistakes.

In this 1-hour live workshop, you‘ll learn how Git can make you a better professional – by helping you roll back, revert, and generally undo almost anything.

What You‘ll Learn?

• Fixing commit messages and changesets
• Discarding local changes, down to individual lines
• Undoing and reverting old commits
• Returning to a previous version of your project
• Restoring deleted branches and commits
• Moving commits between branches
• …and much more!

Commands and workflows are demonstrated using Git on the Command Line, so that anybody can take part – no matter what tools (IDEs, GUIs) they are using. Additionally, to make complex workflows more visual, some commands are also demonstrated using the Tower desktop GUI.
At the end of the workshop, there will also be time to address any open questions that you might have.

Who This Workshop is For?

The workshop is for anyone with a basic understanding of Git and version control.
You will leave the workshop with a solid understanding of how to use Git for improving your day-to-day work. Knowing how to undo mistakes is a crucial skill in today‘s complex projects.
