About the Course

The Version Control with Git course provides you with a solid, hands-on foundation for understanding the Git version control system. Git is open source software originally created by Linus Torvalds. Git manages team files for large and small projects. This allows the team to continuously improve its product. It is used by most major technology companies, and is assumed knowledge for many modern programming and IT jobs. It is a core component of DevOps, continuous delivery pipelines and cloud-native computing. You could also use Git to manage the many continuously improving revisions of that book that you are writing. In this course, you will not learn everything there is to know about Git, but you will build a strong conceptual understanding of the technology, and afterward will be able to confidently dig deeper on any topic that interests you. This course assumes no previous knowledge of Git, but if you do have experience with it, you may find this course to be both useful and challenging. This is especially true if you currently "know just enough Git to be dangerous". There are two paths in this course. Both rely heavily on hands-on labs. One path assumes that you have experience using a command line interface, and the other path uses the Sourcetree graphical client. If you are not experienced with a command line, we highly suggest that you go through the Sourcetree path. Eventually, you might want to go through both paths, so that you can decide which tool to use for specific tasks. Besides, repetition is good for learning :) You can watch the videos and take the quizzes from your phone if you want, but the hands-on labs require you to have a Windows or Mac computer. If you use the command line path through the course, you can also use Linux. This course uses Bitbucket ( as the hosted provider for remote Git repositories. Bitbucket is free for teams of up to 5 people, including private repositories. However, most of the knowledge that you gain in this course applies to Git itself, and you can apply this knowledge to other hosted Git providers (such as GitHub). This course tries to be as concise as possible. It will probably take you about 5-10 hours to go through one of the two paths, but your mileage may vary....

Great course, should be a pre-requisite or additional reading to any intro data science course using Git. Straight-forward, not overly taxing to your time, and full of practical application exercises.

Awesome Course, Learned many new things, I am using git for my day-to-day work, but this course gave me in-depth knowledge of each work and each command that I execute and will execute in the future.

This course it wasn't challenging for me and if you already have experience using GIT I don't recommend you to take it. I finished the whole course in one hour or so. If you are experienced on GIT you can just go directly to the assignments and take them, they are quite easy. They say that "Developers and members of IT (Information Technology) are the primary audience", they should clarify that this course is for beginners.

The course is well-organized. There are a few suggestions: 1. provide download link for the slides used in this course because the hands-on instruction didn't cover all the knowledge in the lecture. 2. more knowledge about revert and reset should be included. There should be a higher-level course after this one talking more about a real-world project. Again, great course!

This course gave me a clear understanding of version control system, Their types, Usage in the industry and many hands on exercises to understand the core concepts behind the git. I would recommend any beginner in the field to tackle this course for a solid understanding of the underlying concepts of git.

Verify informative on Git. clear explanation. course content is good. But regarding difference between master and develop repository could have added more information practically, so the new Git user can make out. i learnt lot from the course. The links provided and Readme contents are clear and useful.

This is a great course, i.e. very pedagogical, a nice structure, a lot of practise material and gives a very solid base for working with git. I highly recomend to anyone wanting to pickup git/github

This was certainly a very well constructed course. It challenged my perceptions, my ideas and my knowledge. I would certainly recommend for anyone looking to get a good understanding of Git.

An excellent intro course to git, Bitbucket and Sourcetree. I did both the Sourcetree and CLI version. Was really good to see things done both ways. Helped to make the material stick.

The course is for complete beginners, it greatly helped me to get started. Definitely, it's not enough for real commercial work.

Pre-reqs were not known for this class -- had to do much learning of unix commands, would have been helpful to know that. The course also needs more flow from start to finish -- it felt like parts were not cumulatively building the learning. I felt like Chapter 3 should be Chapter 1 for example -- these are the commands most are using. Overall it was OK.

The course was more theoretical. Could have been practical

This course is so clear to understand and to follow. Before this I took a couple of courses on git, but left them in between because either they were going too in detail or just weren't showing the consequences of "what if we don't do that".

I am a visual learner. This course has introduces all topics in a clear and concise way that no one till now have done. I like the manner in which the mentor has divided the videos in small chunks. He knows what he say.

In his each slide, he shows the graph representation of commits. It is really easy to follow. That's the thing that I loved the most (and that's why 5 stars) is, when I learn a concept, I think "what if we don't do that." If I don't clear up my doubt I lose the momentum and the course gets boring. Either I have to do that possibility manually and if I do that I get stuck and the doubt stays a doubt. But here, the mentor discusses the possibilities that you should do this when this happens. And most of the time it is what I think of! It saves my time and lets me continue to the course. Everything in one place.

Another thing is his slides are so clear and the last project (exercise) is just amazing. Happy to take this course.

And I along the way I took the notes in clean and concise manner which can be handy anytime. You can view it on my GitHub →

Thanks, Aayush ∞ Shah

I liked the 'Version Control with Git' course from Atlassian because I had long wanted to master software version control via Git technology. Until the course was completed, I gained information about Git only scrappy, sometimes reading articles and questions on StackOverflow.

The course gave me an insight into Git's basic concepts and how I can organize my work in the software development team and opensource projects. Before I taken the course, the term "pull request" remained mysterious to me. The course helped to understand how "pull request merge" can be integrated into Feature Branching Workflow or Gitflow workflow.

Also, I had a barrier in trying Github alternatives. I examined Bitbucket and liked it very much for private projects.

I recommend a course for all beginners.

I give it 5 stars - after doing also the IBM skills network course. While the IBM course does not explain the git concepts properly (just "do this" exercises), the Atlassian course helps understanding what actually happens. What "HEAD means, what a branch (label) is, etc.". It let's one practice both with CLI and Sourcetree tool.

Two critique points: the final project is actually not needed to get the certification. Why is it still a peer-graded-assignment? The project as such is really good - but as peer review it is risky! You are asked to download a zip file and assume it is a repo that someone shared ...

Second, the authorisation token was not really explain for Bitbucket. Found my way around googling ...

A very, very good course!

This course places importance on understanding concepts behind the use of git commands rather than just describing git commands and their effects on files as too many other lesser tutorials do. All important basic concepts are presented in a clear, step-by-step manner allowing a complete beginner to use git commands with confidence. This confidence arises from the understanding of why git commands work instead of just knowing what they do.

Knowing these basic concepts will allow me to teach myself more about git just by reading the standard manual pages rather than having to resort to tutorials.

Probably more time should have been dedicated to Changing History topic. In addition, it would be nice if a summary of all git commands discussed was provided as a cheat sheet for easier review.

Unlike other courses on Git, this course from Atlassian gets a little deeper into Git. I definitely recommend it for any developer.

Beautiful course of basic git commands and workflows

By Tobias S

I'm very satisfied with the course though I couldn't give it five stars because of the following. First, the instructions for how to sync a forked repository on were out-of-date. I had to do some googling to find the right instructions. Second, I found the video for the different Git workflows to shallow in depth. I would have liked some use case examples and more exhaustive information regarding the workflows.

Having that said, I found the course educational and I feel the goals of the course are accurate. You do learn a solid foundation on which you can continue to improve your Git knowledge.
