Sorry if this is not the appropriate forum for the question.

How long does it take to get used to using git? I have never used a
version control system and I don't want to go through the pain much

Thanks in advance.


Well I came from a basic experience with Subversion but it only took me about a week to get a handle on the basic pull-change-commit-push cycle.

You might also want to look at the git website for documentation and tutorials.


Thanks James, I appreciate you sharing your experience.

You might be at an advantage using git as your first version control
system. Most of us learned it with a background in subversion or some
other SCM, and while there are lots of similarities, there are subtle
differences which can trip you up.

Along with the other resources there's the git community book

And Scott Chacon's pro-git book from Apress which is also available
on-line as soft copy

I've found Scott to be one of the best explainers of Git.

Thanks guys,

All pages have been bookmarked.

I appreciate all the insight.
