My New Pluralsight Course: Git for Visual Studio Developers

git-visual-studio-developers  git

I am really happy to announce that my latest Pluralsight course is now online!

As a developer that spends most of my time using Visual Studio, I realized that there is not a lot of guidance out there on how to use be successful with Git without having to jump out to command-line.  So I created this course to help people out there that not only want to understand how Git works, but also feel the most productive and comfortable when they can stay within Visual Studio.

Another big motivation is that TFS 2013 supports Git as source control, so now you can choose between TFS Version Control and Git when you create a Team Project. I wrote a guest blog post in the MVP Blog last month on the subject when TFS 2013 launched. 

If you are a Visual Studio developer that is trying to understand how to get the most out of Git, this is the course for you, I hope you enjoy it!

    Could mirror them in a few steps:

    Create new VSTS/VSO repo
    Get path
    git remote add seconrepository alt-machine:/path/to/repo
    Git push -f secondrepository master

      Looks great! is this actually a solution to mirroring of GitHub and VSTS or a new question? I just didn’t try that since I am new to git and scared of making some irreversible changes to my code. Thanks.

    Thank you so much.. your articles are the best in solving issues .. they’re exactly what a user looks for and cannot find in official blogs or documentation.

    BTW, is there any way to have local repo connected to both GitHub and VSTS simultaneously?

      Yes, you can add multiple remotes:
