Are you a software developer who uses Git and GitHub, or needs to start using these tools for work or a side project?
This 2-hour intermediate course takes away the guesswork. It builds on my free, introductory course Short and Sweet: Get Started with Git and GitHub Right Now, to tackle tough topics like collaboration, branching and merging. The intro course has 200+ reviews and 8000 students.
This course goes way beyond the intro course. More examples and more practical knowledge – and the same simple, no-nonsense structure.
Save time and get productive with Git and GitHub – fast!
In less than 2 hours, this Short and Sweet course will take you from beginner to intermediate skills, without a lot of filler. At the end of the course, you’ll be able to add collaborators to your own projects, clone and collaborate on other people’s or companies’ projects, use branching and merging to minimize conflicts, fork projects, and recover from errors by rolling back to prior versions the right way.
That’s a great trade for 2 hours of your time!
What do students say about this course?
“This is an excellent course on how to start using Git & GitHub with clear examples throughout the course. Gives all the good practises to start coding and committing code to your own or multi-user project. Shows you how to do all the usual commands and scenarios when developing code in a project.
“It also shows where & how things can go wrong and also VERY importantly shows what you must not do which could wreck other users’ submission of code or break the project.
“I would Highly Recommend this course as it covers the basics that you need to know. :-)” —Mark Collins
Why Git and GitHub?
Using Git on the command line can seem difficult because the commands are exacting, and they can trip you up if you get out of sync – but Git and GitHub are very powerful and absolutely essential for modern software developers.
That’s because Git and GitHub are a mainstay of modern software version control. Used together, they provide a backup mechanism, a record of your project’s history, a collaboration mechanism, and a base for a public portfolio that could get you a job.
“I truly enjoyed taking this course and I am happy to say that I am using some of the best practices listed in the course. I strongly recommend the course for newbies and even to people familiar with using git.” —Darknight
Please note: This is a command-line-based course designed to get you productive FAST. This course assumes you already have a GitHub account, have installed Git on your computer, and have pushed your first commit. If you haven’t, please enroll for free in my 30-minute introductory course Short and Sweet: Get Started with Git and GitHub Right Now.
But if you’ve already taken the introductory course, or you’re slightly familiar with Git and GitHub and want to look under the hood and get serious, this course IS for you and I hope you’ll enroll.
“I was already familiar with Git, but had not used it in a workflow that used pull requests. Also, I’ve been trying to understand the rebase command, and no previous explanation made sense to me. This course satisfactorily described both pull requests and the most-likely situation where I would use rebase.” —Steven Calwas
Second note (for serious students ONLY!): This course tackles collaborative Git and GitHub topics that many online courses and tutorials don’t: It covers the Fork & Pull model (often used by larger, more established projects) and the Shared Repository model (often used by smaller or more informal projects).
Some of these topics are ha
“Thorough, clear and reasonably paced.” (Anthony Brida)
“great course: short & straight to the point. God preparation for using the collaborative features of GitHub. Thx Stephanie!” (Christian Lupp)
“Very useful and practical information, delivered in a very clear and pleasant way.
Thank you” (George Anagnostou)
