Who is this book for?

Goal-Oriented Git is targeted at complete Git beginners. If you want to learn how to use Git without worrying too much about what's going on under the hood, then this book is for you. Maybe you've just joined a team using Git as their version control system and aren't quite sure how to navigate, or maybe you know just enough to be dangerous.

Predictably, we'll focus on achieving goals in your project. Every chapter will take something that Git can do for you—from tracking changes, to searching your files, to collaborating with others—and explain practically how to achieve that goal. We won't just stick to the basics: the goal of this book is to teach you a working set of Git commands that can get you through most day-to-day situations.
