dont understand why git is so popular. ive used svn for years and it works great. tortoise svn on windws is great too.

Apparently it's much faster than SVN, and you can work offline if needed.

I can use SVN offline as well. I only need a network connection when I want to update up to the main trunk, or download from the main trunk. Otherwise, all my development and debug is in my local repository.
I have nothing against GIT, it just seems that it's popular just because it's new(er) and all the hip dudes use it. SVN or GIT would work fine for most projects.

I've been meaning to learn git for ages now; I'm not familiar with SVN or any other kind of code management, so I'm kind of looking for a cheat-sheet that isn't just a large block of text with GIT commands, but instead some sort of logical flowchart that I can follow over and over and over again until I've essentially repeated it enough times to remember the basics.

Anyone in /v/programming know of a good resource for this? I'm not actively coding right now, but I do have a lot of projects that I do for individual configurations of 3D printers, which I'd like to commit to a git repo so that I can store the configurations and modifications I've made to each machine. This requires keeping firmware versions for each machine, etc and I figured learning this would make my life easier.

I've been programming professionally for a couple decades now. I've always run my own backups until recently so I never had a need for a centralized repository like git until last year.

Rather than a flow chart I'd suggest a decent tutorial. Branching is the main reason Git is so popular and most everything you need to learn is probably in this one tutorial.


Good Luck.

Thanks for the resource! This is a fucking brilliantly designed site.
