What is this course about?
This course is designed to quickly teach you the fundamentals of git, so you can begin using it in your projects, today. Git is a popular and modern version control software that allows developers to track their code and collaborate with others. When tied in with GitHub, git becomes an even more powerful way to backup your projects and share them on the web.
What kind of materials are included?
The course is made up of video lectures and multiple choice quizzes. The only things you will need are a Cloud 9 account and a GitHub account (both are free). For those who are interested, instructions for installing git locally can be found at the end of the course.
How long will the course take to complete?
On average, it should only take a few hours to watch all of the videos, take the quizzes and implement the commands on your own. However, the pace at which you complete the course is up to you.
How is the course structured?
The course is divided into a few short sections, each of which contains several video lectures. The video lectures are designed to tackle one or two new commands or concepts at a time, thus making the content easily digestible.
Why take this course?
A lot of the content from this course can be found online for free, but if you’re the kind of person who learns better by seeing things in action, then this course is for you. The video lectures are designed to help you learn quickly, without the headache of reading through a lot of documentation. I also support your learning by being available to answer any questions you may have via the Q&A board.
