Git 102

So you’ve learned the basics of Git, and you’ve started butting up against it. Maybe you can’t quite remember all the different sub-commands and flags you use occasionally, or people have been moaning at you that your commit history is a bit messy. Ever deleted a branch accidentally and think it’s gone forever? Or maybe you’re using Git for editing text, and are fed up with diffs telling you a whole paragraph has changed when you’ve only changed a single character?
