Git Resources

I have been learning to use Git. The following is a list of resources I found to be useful, interesting, or that I want to explore further as I get into Git:

Website: Git – Fast Version Control System – The home of Git. When you think source code management it’s only natural to picture a monster eating trees.

Book: Book – Pro Git – by Scott Chacon – Concise coverage of using Git. You can purchase the book or read the whole book online.

Book: Safari Books Online: Version Control with Git, 1st Edition

Tool: msysgit – Run Git on Windows from a specialized BASH prompt.

[Update 2010-07-03: Changed the order of the list so the resources I have used the most are above this note.]
