Who This Site Is For
"Advanced beginners" with Git. You should know how to create a repository, add and commit files to it, and you should probably have some idea of why you might want to use a branch.
If you're still struggling with what version control software is for, this site may not be that useful to you. I encourage you to poke around, but if you're not getting much out of it, check out my resources page for some pointers, and consider coming back to this site later.
On the other hand, if you can already do a
git rebase --interactive without breaking a sweat, you may not get that much out of the site. (But I hope it gives you a framework for helping others learn!) I encourage you to look over the Resources, and suggest any other links you've found that have helped you get to where you are now.
