Updated Jan 07, 2020

This course introduces version control, its relevance, and usage. In the first part, you'll learn how to set up and configure Git on your computer. Then, you'll create a repository and use it for exercises throughout the course. Through multiple demos, you'll learn concepts that show various stages of a file - from when it is untracked to when it is set for tracking under version control. You'll see how to navigate the history of a repository, fetch and deliver code to GitHub, and undo code changes. The first part ends with you learning to work with branches, storing and retrieving changes temporarily, and merging the desired changes into a repository.  

In the second part, you'll learn about forking as part of a collaborative workflow. You'll learn to address modularity and duplication through submodules, tracing and rectifying faulty changes, and maintaining repositories. The second part ends with you learning how to deploy applications using GitHub.  

Target Audience 

If you want to migrate from other version control tools or want to learn more about Git, you will find this course useful and interesting. Prior experience in coding or familiarity with using the bash command line interface, will enable you to easily grasp concepts.
