Git | Modules Unraveled
I'm releasing a new series today!!!!!
Over the last year, I've given a talk at DrupalCon, DrupalCorn Camp, and Drupal Camp Colorado all about using Composer and Configuration Management in Drupal 8. Those sessions were around 45 minutes, which is much too short to go in depth, and explain everything thoroughly.
If you're still using FTP to install modules, update Drupal or make any changes to your Drupal codebase... STOP. Right now!
Git is a version control system with incredible features, and in this series you'll learn the basics to get you up and running.
Git has, on several occasions, saved me from myself when I accidentally deleted, modified or updated a module, causing an error. Git allows you to easily roll back changes to your codebase with a single command.
The Installing Git series is a free series that walks you through the process of installing Git for the first time and/or updating Git to the latest release on both Windows and Macs.
Installing Git on Windows is pretty straight forward, you just download the "Git for Windows" installer, and step through the process.
