Git Reset –hard Your Fears

Zvonimir Spajic @konrad_126

Many developers fear the reset command because of its reputation for being dangerous. While it is true that it can be dangerous and cause you to lose your changes like tears in the rain, as it is with many fears, it’s mostly based on a lack of understanding. So let’s give your fear of the reset command an antidote - a proper understanding of how git reset works.
