CCATP #679 – Bart Busschots on PBS 113 of X My First Git Remote

Last time on Programming By Stealth, Bart introduced the concept of remote repositories, also known as remotes. It was one of those episodes where we learned a lot but didn’t get to apply what we learned. In this week’s installment, we get our hands digitally dirty as we create a bare repository (a repo with no working tree), and declare it to be a backup of our local repo. We learn how to fetch and view remote branches and tags, how to push everything to the remote, and then after making some changes, push them to our remote backup. We’re still in a bit of a sandbox as we do all this on one computer inside a couple of local folders, but the lessons exercise our new muscles to get ready for the big leagues.

Bart’s excellent tutorial show notes are as always available at pbs.bartificer.net/…
