More Information
  • Learn the key concepts of the Git source control system~Step through the entire Git workflow
  • Compare the different states in Git and compare between branches and commits~Manage files with Git (move, rename, delete) and update files managed outside Git
  • Create and fork repositories on GitHub and push changes back after working after working on them locally
  • Create branches and resolve merge conflicts like a pro

This course is designed to be a comprehensive approach to Git, which means no prior knowledge or experience is required but students will emerge at the end with a very solid understanding and hands-on experience with Git and related source control concepts.Beginning with an introduction to Git, the first thing we’ll learn is how to install Git for both Windows and Mac. We’ll then walk through all the foundational commands needed to start a new project managed by Git all the way through making commits, including common file operations like moving and deleting files. With a strong foundation in place, we explore ways to make Comparisons in Git, including all the different local states, between commits, and between local and remote repositories. After gaining a strong foundation in branching and merging, we will then cover more complex topics like Rebasing, where we cover how to resolve a rebase conflict.By the end of the course, you’ll have a solid understanding of Git and version control so you can use it in your own projects.

With nearly 20 years of programming and software development experience, I started out teaching myself programming while in High School. I put myself through college working for a local Internet Service Provider as a programmer. Before finishing college, I developed and sold an award winning website to a Dot-Com start-up. After college, I have worked at several companies ranging from start-ups to large enterprises focusing on Java and client-side technologies (HTML/CSS/JavaScript). Throughout my career, I have opportunity to learn many software development best practices and exposure to several version control systems
