The most interesting part for me was the final project that had to do with all the knowledge gathered from the beginning of the course. It was more practical and engaging.

I’ve used git and GitHub for the past 4 years, so this course was very easy to me. I completed it in 1.5 hours, so I might slightly be biased due to my experience. I really liked the following things: + The course covered all main concepts of git/GitHub, which you will use + It covered both UI and CLI commands. + There were a lot of opportunities to practice the commands/features that got introduced to you. + The final assignment is really hands on Things I can think can be improved. - There wasn't a mention of advanced concepts like fixing a merge conflict or squashing commits. - I feel like with git and GitHub there should be more practical labs, since this is a tool that you really learn by using.

The course is awesome since in a short period of time considering all the lectures, quizzes and assignments you get a decent amount of information. But not all that information is being practiced so you are left with information that you are likely to forget unless you'll be working with that soon.

I mean you get skills on how to work on your own with git and GitHub but the information about commands that can be used if you're administrator in some group project are not practiced.

This course was very helpful. The final project, especially part 2 stretched me. I had to really troubleshoot, and the prompt does not sugarcoat the process it takes to make changes, fork, and clone. By the end of it I feel like I have a good understanding of git and a much better understanding of how to utilize github.

Really good course to take if you don't have any idea about git repositoriesm very useful to gain an insight about the tool. 4/5 because perfection does not exist

Great course for beginners who want to learn GitHub. The course even covers Git Bash so that you can use the Command Line Interface through Git Bash.
