Monday, 15:40, 2 hours | Stevens Creek


Eclipse and many other open source projects are moving to Git, are you prepared? Want to learn Git and use it within Eclipse? Well then this tutorial is made for you!

This tutorial will introduce you to Git through hand on exercises that use EGit and Gerrit to perform common version control tasks.

If you plan to attend the tutorial you should consider to prepare that by going through the first exercise Installation and Configuration before the tutorial starts.

This way you avoid wasting precious tutorial time with installing the prerequisites and you can spend more time on the more interesting Exercises.
