More and more of my TFS consulting customers are interested in Git. If you’re used to a centralized version control system like Team Foundation Server Version Control (TFVC), it can be a little tricky to make the move to Git — not because it’s all that hard — mostly because the terminology is completely different. So, are you a TFVC user who needs to wrap your head around Git? Here’s a little cheat sheet for you.
|TFS Version Control||Git|
|Workspace||Repository (aka. “Repo”)|
|Get Latest (First time)||Clone|
|Get Latest (After first time)||Pull|
|Check in||Commit + Push|
|Check out||(just start typing)|
|Code Review||“pull request”|
Hope this helps.
