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!
What you’ll learn
- Understand why version control is a fundamental tool for coding and collaboration
- Install and run Git on your local machine
- Use and interact with GitHub
- Collaborate with others through remote repositories
Skills you will gain
- Using Git
- Version Control Systems
- Interacting with GitHub
- Reverting Changes
- Creating Pull Requests
- Introduction to Version Control: In this module, you’ll be introduced to the concept of version control, which will make managing and rolling back your code look super easy.
- Using Git Locally: In this module, you’ll dive into advanced Git interactions by skipping the staging area for small code changes, and understand how Git uses the HEAD alias to represent checked-out snapshots.
- Working with Remotes: In this module, you’ll be introduced to GitHub and learn how it works with Git. You’ll create new repositories and clone those repositories onto your computer.
- Collaboration: In this module, you’ll continue to explore the collaboration tools available in Git. You’ll learn about the tools that are available to help improve the quality of your code and to better track your code.
