The lectures move very quickly and don't really teach you how to use any git commands. the hands on labs were very helpful but the only real learning was to be had by the optional assignments. If you were to skip those, you wouldn't have retained the knowledge to complete the final assignment.

Hello, my name is Douglas Bermudez I am living in Dallas Texas. Currently, I have been working at NEC Corporation of America as desktop support analyst level II since 2018. I have taking this as part of the Full Stack Developer certification to get a job as Full Stack Developer. Git and Github certification has provided me the skills and knowledge to work projects locally or from cloud without affect the main project, this tool recorded any change made on the program code as version control helping the project manager and developer avoid any mistake before deploying the app. I loved this course because I have the knowledge and skills work projects locally or from the cloud.

Overall a good course - with gaps in explaining some of the concepts properly. In the exercise, you need to work with pull requests, which need to be explained better. And the task can be misleading ... should the PR be for the forked project or for the original source repo??? But it is still well spent time, with good hands-on elements.

Although I was working and using Git for over 2 years but the knowledge provided in this course was really helpful and labs were designed efficiently to provide the candidate with sound knowledge of Git and Github.Highly recommended for someone looking to demonstrate Github knowledge or if you are totally begginer then this is the right place for you.Thanks.

This is a wonderful course, made with soul. This is a wonderful story in simple words about complex topics. Huge thanks to the amazing creators and IBM Corporation. I am a refugee from Ukraine studying to find a job and this course has been a huge support for me and my family during a difficult time after russia's dastardly attack on Ukraine.
