Git Essentials: Mini Course

Welcome to Git for Everybody (AKA. Git Essentials), the updated version for the modern web developer.

Note: This is the free mini course

This is a course that will teach you enough to get started working with Git and GitHub.

By the end of this course you will have the knowledge and confidence you need to work in a tea and start working on open source projects!

I’ve worked with several teams over the years and everything you’ll learn in this course is what I tend to use almost every day and certainly every week.

Here’s the rough outline of everything you’ll learn in this course:

  • How to use Git on the command line (pro tip: it’s more important to learn Git from the command line first than it is to learn how to use a visual tool. Servers don’t have visual programs ?)

  • Installing Git on Windows, Mac and Linux

  • How to configure Git on your computer, and add your SSH key

  • Creating, cloning and adding files to a GitHub repository

  • Managing files, commits and branches ⭐️

  • How to merge branches into other branches ⭐️⭐️

  • How to view old files from an older time

  • And much much more!

We’ll work through lots of examples together and get you hands on experience with all of this by creating your own repositories and adding work onto mine.
