Taming Git and GitHub with PowerShell

This presentation was built based on a demo and talk that I did for the Reasearch Triangle PowerShell Users Group (RTPSUG).

  • I cover the essentials of setting up and configuring Git for efficient version control. I show how to install and use the posh-git module, a versatile Git integration for PowerShell.
  • I illustrate the Git and GitHub Workflow, covering concepts like repositories, commits, and pull requests, and show how they all fit together.
  • I discuss the process of forking a repository and cloning it to your local machine. This essential skill will enable you to contribute to projects and collaborate effectively with others.
  • In the YouTube video, I show how to work with branches and how and why to rebase your commit history. I also cover how to keep your repository clean.
