My latest book on Git, Pragmatic Guide to Git goes on sale today! I'm really excited about this new book. It's the culmination of a year's worth of work on an entirely new format for Pragmatic Bookshelf.

From today's announcement:

Last summer, Pragmatic author Travis Swicegood proposed a new kind of book covering the popular version control system, Git. We thought it was a good idea-so much so that we've launched a whole new series in this format. Check out the details on the series below, as well as Travis' new book, Pragmatic Guide to Git, now available in beta.

Having a good idea is cool. Having a good idea that you can get other people excited about too is even better. I thought I was onto something interesting when I pitched the idea to Prag, and so did everyone else there. A year later and here we are with an entire new series lined up.

Here's the quick description of the new book:

Need to learn how to wrap your head around Git, but don't need a lot of hand holding? Grab this book if you're new to Git, not to the world of programming. Git tasks displayed on two-page spreads provide all the context you need, without the extra fluff.
