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.

Good practice for the basic commands. One or two bits are implied like checking out to the proper branch before committing.

Course structure was good and informative. But the CLI on which final GIT assigment must be done should be updated and clear. I noticed sometimes when the commands are entered, multiple lines are appearing and seems distorted. Apart from that everything was fine.
