Re: Another excellent learning resource for Git
Make sure you learn Git on the command line first before trying client software. It helps a lot.

Another excellent learning resource for Git
Atlassian also has a great resource for learning the essentials of Git:

https://www.atlassian.com/git

It's a helpful resource that has tutorials, teaches you about Git workflows, migration from other version control systems like SVN, and a ton of other useful resources.

Additionally, if folks are just getting started with Git and don't want to set up their own local server, https://bitbucket.org/ is a great site to host your code on and is the only high volume service that allows for free private repos.

Progress
This sounds like solid first-step career advice. As for the organization, how much progress can you expect to make in your org using version control alone? Is there an "early win" to aim for from version control that can help build the mo' for DevOps more broadly?
