About this video

This course is designed to guide you through working with Git and GitHub. You will start by learning how to install Git on Windows, Mac, and Linux and then understand how to use it on the command line. Next, you will get to grips with configuring Git on a computer and creating, cloning, and adding files to a GitHub repository. The videos will also guide you through creating custom branches and tags, opening and managing GitHub issues, and opening and managing pull requests.

All along, the course follows a practical approach, ensuring that you work through plenty of real-life examples. This will give you hands-on experience in building your own repositories, forking the repo, and even safely opening a pull request on your work. Everything you will learn about Git and GitHub in this course is completely transferable to GitLab and Bitbucket.

In a bonus section, we will also learn how to use GitHub Pages to deploy your project.

By the end of this course, you will be well-versed with Git and GitHub fundamentals, and have the skills you need to work through open-source projects.
