Excellent primer on Git

2 minutes I must admit I have been living under a rock. I started off with SVN back in 2009, and have been using it faithfully for years now (six and counting). What was all the rage back then, soon lost its favor come the 2010s, but due to SVN being bundled with XCode, I continued to …
