Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) June 21, 2011
Git is a big improvement over legacy version control systems (VCSs), and is growing very rapidly in popularity. However, Git is built differently from the ground up so consequently has been viewed as difficult to learn and therefore avoided by many.
GitGuys.com’s mission is to highlight the advantages and break down the barriers of migrating to Git. The site covers the fundamentals of version control systems and truly simplifies the steps and intricacies of using Git repositories.
Git offers many advantages over other version control systems. Its collaborative workflow is extremely flexible - operations and updates happen very quickly, and local branching can be done independently. Unlike legacy systems that require users to be connected to the central repository, Git's distributed architecture enables users to work offline and provides better revision history.
“The GitGuys site is awesome! Even though I was familiar with Git, I read every single page and really learned a lot. Thanks!” said Jacob Avraham, senior software engineer at Compass-EOS. “I couldn’t believe how well illustrated and articulated all the pages were – it was extremely easy to use,” continued Avraham.
“We are very excited about getting GitGuys up and running; we hope it will add value and streamline the process for all the software developers out there that have been thinking about migrating to Git and had been putting it off because of the perceived difficulties” said Tim Flagg, co-author of GitGuys.com and co-founder of Akiri Solutions, Inc. in Palo Alto, CA.
