Course Description

Course description

In this course we’ll cover using Git to manage your project files. Git is a very lightweight but powerful system to manage changes, not just in your source code, but in documents, graphic assets and basically anything you use to deliver projects. You’ll see how to work with local and remote repositories, branch your changes, merge them, share them and all with a few simple commands. This course is very focused on seeing Git in operation and is designed to be easy to follow along with the demos and perform the functions yourself.

Each LearnNowOnline training course is made up of Modules (typically an hour in length). Within each module there are Topics (typically 15-30 minutes each) and Subtopics (typically 2-5 minutes each). There is a Post Exam for each Module that must be passed with a score of 70% or higher to successfully and fully complete the course.


Prerequisites

Basically if you can use a command line you can use it. It’s also appropriate not just for developers but for anyone working on projects, so your creative people and project managers would find the skills useful as well as developers.
