We’ve been using Git as our version control (revision control, source control management, whatever you want to call it) system since we started working on Andromo, and so far I’ve loved it.

Whenever I start learning something new on the computer I look for cheat sheets. They tend to save me a lot of time when I’m searching for the syntax of a command or a hint to get out of a problem. Instead of having to Google the solution, it’s right there in front of you, in that messy pile of paper on your desk. (Please ignore the coffee stains)
