I have had the opportunity to explain Git and the basics of its operation on more than one occasion. It's something that I enjoy doing, especially because I believe it is an indispensable skill for collaboration in industry and academia. I have always distributed a small "cheat sheet" with the most-used commands, and I am posting it here (for no reason other than I can find it quickly in the future). I will include the text in this post, but I will also provide the
.txt file that I use. (Yes, I wrote it in a txt file. I like the way it looks, and when I print it out using Notepad++, the wrapped text is indented nicely.
