Getting started with Git using SourceTree - Part 2: Working together

This video series teaches you Git version control without having to use the command line. As an interface, we use SourceTree from Atlassian and KDiff3 by Joachim Eibl. Part 2 covers working together on the same set of files: setting up remote repositories, cloning, pushing and pulling. Note: downloading PuTTY separately is not needed anymore, it is included :) - If you want to install it separately anyway: Find the link saying 'A Windows installer for everything except PuTTYtel' (We are not affiliated with Atlassian or Joachim Eibl in any way.)

Hi! I'm in an Unreal Engine course and we're using SourceTree. They've made little emphasis in SourceTree features, just the basics. Now I'm having problems pushing my commits while tracking some files with LFS. This problems could be due HTTPS? Can I change to SSH keys at this point of my project?

Edgar Hernandez That's much more than I got into in this series; you didn't say what those problems are, it also depends on your hosting service (GitLab? Bitbucket?) Anyway, you can change SSH keys or even fully switch to HTTPS at any time. Git just checks that the commit hash codes are the same (it's even possible to have multiple remotes.)

Why download PuTTY, when SourceTree has a PuTTY generator under Tools - Create or import SSH keys? Is the downloaded one better? Or was it recently added? I noticed yours was set to 2048 bits, whereas the default is 1024 bits.is that important? Thanks again.

It wasn't included before ;) I've now added a comment saying you can skip the PuTTY download if you want. 1024 bits encrypting is theoretically possible to crack with a brute-force method (you would still need a pretty large botnet). Default for PuTTY is 2048 bits. But unless you're working on (cyber)weapons or something else highly likely to attract big-time hacking, it doesn't matter a lot.

Great tutorial. I've been having trouble using SourceTree. It is really straightforward. BTW Can you please tell me what software you are using to record your screen? It looks really good.

Thanks; The trick is that I used a Mac with QuickTime to record a virtual Windows machine especially cleanly set up in VMware Fusion for these videos, so that it looks nice and clean :)

Can you please tell what should be done on below case. When Anne is editing his file, Ben is also editing his file and both of them are having their own changes. What should be done to resolve the conflict ?
