Let's get started with Git and GitHub

In this Git and GitHub course you will learn the essentials to be comfortable with Git and GitHub. Git is software for tracking changes in any set of files, coordinating work among programmers and developing source code during software development. GitHub is the most popular hosting platform for software development and version control using Git. This course is split into Git tutorial and Git and GitHub

  • What is Git: We'll start by introducing you to Git, a software used for tracking changes in any set of files. It's primarily used by programmers for coordinating work and collaboratively developing source code during software development.
  • Setup Git: We'll guide you through the process of setting up Git on your system, ensuring you have all the necessary tools to get started.
  • Git Commits: You'll learn about Git commits, which are essentially snapshots of your code at a particular point in time. We'll teach you how to make commits and why they're important in version control.
  • Git Branches: We'll delve into Git branches, a feature that lets you diverge from the main line of development and continue work without messing with that main line.
  • Git Push: You'll learn how to use the 'git push' command to upload local repository content to a remote repository.
  • Git Rebase and Git Merge: We'll teach you how to use 'git rebase' and 'git merge', two methods of integrating changes from one branch into another.
  • GitHub: We'll introduce you to GitHub, the most popular hosting platform for software development and version control using Git.
  • Pull Requests: You'll learn about pull requests, a feature unique to GitHub that allows developers to propose changes to a repository.
  • Exploring GitHub: We'll guide you through the various features of GitHub, helping you understand how to navigate the platform effectively.
  • Open Source Software: Finally, we'll discuss open-source software, a type of software that allows developers to view, use, and modify the source code.
