About this video

Git has become an important aspect of software development. With Git, software developers can easily track the changes made in software files and directories. In this course, all the concepts of Git are explained in detail to help you master Git with ease.

The course starts with an introduction to Git and explains the setup and installation process of Git. Next, you will learn to configure and create Git repositories and learn about GitHub fork and the clone processes. Moving along, you will understand how an artifact (file or directory) goes through the Git workflow to reach the climactic point wherein the artifacts are safely placed in the Git database. You will then cover the Git branching basics and learn how to undo changes in a Git repository. Next, you will learn to push and pull changes to GitHub repositories, connect with GitHub through the Secure Shell (SSH) protocol, and customize Git Bash to make it user friendly. Later, you will learn to install and configure the default text editor and merge tools and learn Git comparison, branching, and merging techniques. Finally, you will learn to modify commit history to suit your project needs, use tags to mark production releases, and use the Git toolset to save unfinished work.

By the end of this course, you will have a detailed understanding of Git and will have developed the skills needed to apply in the real-world.
