Git Version Control Systems (VCS) changes your approach to modern software engineering. Using Git, you can easily track the history of file and code changes, deliver new versions of software without relying on any continuous delivery mechanisms, and protect your code from any mistakes made while programming.
In this course, we’ll teach you the basics of using Git and explain how it works. To begin with, we’ll show you how to install Git and effectively use your computer’s terminal or command line to navigate the file system, and create and edit files. Then we’ll cover all the commonly used commands in Git that make up the vast majority of any Software Engineer’s workflow.
Moving on, we’ll explain Git’s branching workflow, why it’s such a useful feature, and how to use it in your projects. Once you’ve learned all this, we’ll discuss some advanced Git workflow techniques that will make you a valued contributor and collaborator on any project. You’ll be able to create your own Git repositories, or clone and contribute to existing ones. This will allow you to track the changes to sets of files over time, recover data you might lose, and collaborate with others on projects. You’ll have a profound understanding of Git’s branching workflow, and how to use it in the best possible way in your projects.
By the end, you’ll be familiar with using Git and use VCS to handle large projects easily and make well-crafted contributions to your own or others’ projects.

Style and Approach

In this course, we’ll use a combination of lecture-style videos and hands-on examples to help you use Git in practice. This will help you both understand what Git is doing behind the scenes to help you track your files, but more importantly, to apply this knowledge to real-world situations.

  • Learn how to create, contribute to, and collaborate on software projects using Git
  • Understand its fundamental features, and find out what sets it apart from other Version Control Systems
  • Become a valued contributor to any project with Git usage and etiquette guidelines that other developers will thank you for

High quality, professional personal development. Teclado produces training courses to expand your knowledge to new areas and learn to tackle new challenges, expertly.

Jose Salvatierra started Teclado in 2017 to bring software development to as many students as possible. Its courses help them transition to new software areas, such as backend development using Python, web development, and automated testing.

Their mission is to bring the knowledge of professional software engineers to students around the world so that students can learn the skills they need on the job with concise and straightforward screencasts.

Ross Conyers is a Computer Science Graduate and Software Engineer who started programming and building computers in his teens and went on to study Computer Science at the University of St Andrews. When he started programming, he worked with web technologies and Java. During his degree, he focussed on network programming and have developed a love of all things. Throughout his work, he did programming mostly in Python, working on high traffic, data-intensive, distributed systems that are used by millions of people per day. He believes to share some of his knowledge gained within the several years.
