Git Fundamentals

An introductory course in using Git to manage your websites and other software projects

In this course, you will learn the fundamentals you need to know to use Git to manage your websites and other software projects.

Who is this class for?

This class is for anyone just getting started with Git. You might be someone transitioning from a site-builder role to writing code. Or perhaps you're just trying to up your web development game.

What will you learn?

This class starts with the very basics and covers everything you need to use Git individually or on a project team. This includes:

  • Git concepts like commits, branches, tags, and repositories.
  • Git commands for adding, moving, and deleting files in your git repository.
  • Creating .gitignore files to exclude files from being tracked by Git.
  • Using branches to work on different tasks separately and merge them when they are ready to deploy.
  • Fixing mistakes you make with Git, and reverting back to older versions of files when necessary.
  • Using GitHub to manage your project workflow.

How is this class taught?

The class will consist of two weekly video lessons, each around 2 hours long, and two weekly live Q&A sessions with the instructor. The lessons will cover the topics listed below, and can be watched on-demand, any time that is convenient for you. We will provide you with an online development environment, so you don't need to worry about setting that up ahead of time.

The weekly live sessions will be conducted online, using the Zoom webinar software. During the sessions, the instructor will answer all your questions and will help troubleshoot any issues you have following the course. In addition to the live sessions, you will have access to an online forum to discuss with other students and ask the instructor questions during the week.

After the course is over you can continue to access the lesson videos, free of charge, forever. There are no monthly subscription fees. Just come back and watch the lessons whenever you want. They are a great reference when you forget how to do something.
