Learn eight power-user Git commands that can save you time, prevent bugs, and more. Find out how to increase your productivity as well as minimize your moments of frustration. Ronnie walks you through a few basic tricks like stashing and adding changes, and then turns to more advanced techniques, such as undoing commits, reverting, and setting up precommit hooks. Test out your new skills with Git-command challenges along the way.
