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 (bitbucket.org) 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.

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

Great course! The actual videos and labs are VERY clear and helpful. BUT... the project is confusing and it was not clear that it was optional. I finished late just because I assumed the project was mandatory and it was so abstract it was difficult to follow. Make the project more concrete and have reasons in the example (even if it's silly) to do the branches etc. And make it clear the quizzes are mandatory, not the project.

I did NOT like the course on "pull requests" as I feel these are not central to Git and only specific to BitBucket and online Git version control hosting platforms. I also did not like using BitBucket. The class should focus on Git command line only and not include SourceTree. The command line videos and assignments were great and well written. I enjoyed the final project too.

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.

For the first two weeks i can able to understand the contents of the course but after second week the merging in git is more complex and the branch diagrams. The author should include more content on the branching and merging

It's a great course but sometimes it can get boring. The most exciting part of it was doing the final project but I didn't get revise it so I don't know if I did well.

it would be better if the course provides the real cases and codes for users to practce in order to see how git works and what results these commands produce

Too basic. Needs more practice and coverage of advanced topics like cherry-picking.

Looks to be a robotic narration. The course from Google is far better.
