About the Author
Ravishankar Somasundaram has over 6 years of techno-functional experience in providing solutions to clients across multiple sectors and domains. Being passionate about learning and teaching, he also strongly believes that the sole purpose of learning is to make our minds think in different perspectives, and he facilitates this in his training sessions through a blended learning approach mainly focused on how to "learn to learn".
Junior Scientist: Apart from winning several prizes in science projects in his lower schoolings, he was awarded the title "Junior Scientist" by the committee consisting of people from the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) in an Inter school Science Fest for a model display on Evolution of Airplanes through Aerodynamics. This is one of his childhood achievements.
His final year college project, aimed at eliminating the scenario of English alone being the medium of programming in all programming languages, which restricts people who don't know English from getting into the IT field and implementing their ideas, was selected and funded by MIT NRCFOSS and considered as a landmark.
By early 2010 he was an official third-party developer of Moodle code, one of the seven people from India and the only one from Tamil Nadu. He shares his knowledge by helping people on the Moodle official forum and on IRC. He has also presented a paper in the 9th International Tamil Internet conference on Moodle: For Enhanced Learning which talks about leveraging Modle's capability to expand user base for one of the oldest language known to mankind - Tamil.
Ravi currently leads Thirdware technology solutions efforts on "Next Generation Mobility" by playing with evolving technologies through its trends - predominantly focusing on Enterprise mobility (MEAP segment) as a Senior Technical Analyst heading the R&D division.
Recently he represented his company at an international conference: "Yugma Unleashing the Innovation Potential", with an idea that uses Artificial Intelligence to empower the next generation of enterprise mobile solutions.

Enter this book. It is SHORT and to the point. It provides CLEAR examples, followed by a brief explanation of why you did what you just did. All examples are presented via the CLI and GUI mode. I was only concerned with the latter, which shortened the book further.
If you need a short and to the point book to pick up the basics of Git in a VERY short period of time, this is IT.
This book will not give you a deep understanding of Git (there are other books available to do that) but it will give you enough information to get going in an easy and fun manner. I highly recommend this book if you're completely new to Version Control Systems and Git.
Do not expect to know everything about Git from this book. This is a beginner's guide. and a great one indeed. It got me up and going at no time. I ordered a pro git book after this and it turned out to be a perfect combination for me.
I highly recommend this book. I had absolutely no idea about Git / Github and I am very happy that I have started with this book.
