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.

TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO GIT AND GITHUB
Awesome and well balanced course for working professionals. Clear explanations and coverage of typical use case scenarios. The labs were manageable and did not require a lot of time to complete them.
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.
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.
Loved this course as it helped me solidify my understanding of git and opened ways for me to think of and use git, github on contributing to open source projects and managing my own projects.
