“Unleash Your Coding Potential: Master the Art of Git Committing in Visual Studio!”

Git and Visual Studio

Git, oh Git! A highly regarded version control system that enables developers to track code changes while assisting in efficient collaboration with others in their team. It’s also highly useful when you need to revert to a previous version of your code. Similarly, Microsoft Visual Studio is regarded as one of the most popular integrated development environments (IDEs) that supports Git natively. In this write-up, we shall take you through the convoluted process of committing code changes to Git with the aid of Visual Studio.

Step 1: Initiate a Git repository

The first mind-boggling step involves the initiation of your Git repository. Open your project in Visual Studio, then navigate to the “Team Explorer” tab, and click on the option to “Create a new Git repository.” This action will beget a Git repository in your project directory that will make some sense (yes, we know, it still looks quite bewildering).

Step 2: Stage your changes

But where do we go from here? Before you can commit your changes to the repository, you need to select the specific files that need submitting. This is known as staging, in simpler bird-brained terms. Access the “Changes” tab, choose the files you intend to commit, then click on the “+” icon to stage your changes (You got this!).

Step 3: Craft a commit message

Now you’re cooking with gas! You select the specific files that you intend to commit, but you must outline a concise commit message that indicates the various changes that you made. It must be precise and descriptive, and sophisticated enough to enlighten other developers as to why you did what you did.

Step 4: Commit your changes

This is where the rubber meets the road. After staging your changes and crafting a descriptive commit message, you can commit the changes at the bottom of the “Changes” tab by clicking on the ‘Commit’ button (By now, you need to be feeling the energy of this insanity!).

Step 5: Push your changes

You’ve come a long way, champ! But still, we aren’t done. Once you’ve made your commit, you need to push it to the remote repository with just a simple click. Navigate to the “Sync” tab, click the “Push” option, and then complete the process by clicking on the “Push” button.


Congratulations on sticking with this and making it to the end! To commit code changes to Git with Visual Studio is an exciting yet labyrinthine process. With the steps outlined in this tutorial, you can now keep track of changes to your codebase, collaborate with your team members without hassle (theoretically speaking), and revert to previous versions when necessary. Please ensure you regularly push your changes to the remote repository and write a catchy (I mean descriptive) commit message at all times. Now, happy coding, you tech wizard!
