About the Course

In this course, you’ll learn how to keep track of the different versions of your code and configuration files using a popular version control system (VCS) called Git. We'll also go through how to setup an account with a service called GitHub so that you can create your very own remote repositories to store your code and configuration. Throughout this course, you'll learn about Git's core functionality so you can understand how and why it’s used in organizations. We’ll look into both basic and more advanced features, like branches and merging. We'll demonstrate how having a working knowledge of a VCS like Git can be a lifesaver in emergency situations or when debugging. And then we'll explore how to use a VCS to work with others through remote repositories, like the ones provided by GitHub. By the end of this course, you'll be able to store your code's history in Git and collaborate with others in GitHub, where you’ll also start creating your own portfolio! In order to follow along and complete the assessments, you’ll need a computer where you can install Git or ask your administrator to install it for you....

This course was really filled with a lot of new concepts and technologies. But it was really interesting and having the instructor reassure you that it's normal to not understand everything helped keep me motivated.

Very informative, straightforward and engaging. Version Control Systems like VCS take a lot of time to understand and get used to. You cannot memorize these commands. Always have the official Git reference in hand.

The course covers all basics (and some intermediate I think) skills around Git/Github and version control. Explaining the workflow since creating files until upload the changes into a remote repo. I'm very happy.

Great Introductory course on Git and GitHub.

I have taken few courses before but this course made all the concepts very clear.

Now I can't think of starting any programming project without Version Control System.

Вполне полезный курс, где всё объяснено постепенно. Много коротких видео, в которых без воды объясняется только самое необходимое. Поддержка курса работает, вопросы не виснут без ответов на форуме. Рекомендую.

I have always looked at at Github when searching for code or help on a project, but never understood what it was all about. I now have a much better understanding and appreciation for Github.

A great course with a great instructor/guide. The online assessment tool is one of the best and easiest to work with and also teaches us how to connect to a google cloud instance passively.

You learn a lot of things that are more subtle that help with understanding things like what is the HEAD and origin. Also the explanations on the git flow and the github flow are great.
