"git bisect" is a command that is part of the Git distributed version control system. This command enables software users, developers and testers to easily find the commit that introduced a regression. This is done by performing a kind of binary search between a known good and a known bad commit. git bisect supports both a manual and an automated mode. The automated mode uses a test script or command. People are very happy with automated bisection, because it saves them a lot of time, it makes it easy and worthwhile for them to improve their test suite, and overall it efficiently improves software quality.
Testers, developers and advanced users, who have some basic knowledge of version control systems, will learn practical tips, techniques and strategies to efficiently debug software.
