About This Class
In this class I will teach you essentials of Git. Git is an open source version control system used mainly for source code management. Git knowledge is important if you plan to apply for a software development job position. This class will teach you Git from scratch. No prior knowledge is required.
This class will explain important git concepts from the scratch. Through the class we will also cover more advanced topics of Git (e.g. handling conflicts, detached HEAD state, mechanism behind the scenes and many more). I would recommend this class for beginners and advanced programmers who are interested in mastering the git.
To help you better understand the practical application of git we will use Visual Studio Code with some popular git extensions. Visual Studio Code is an open source free to use code editor. It is one of the most worldwide used editors nowadays.
To be able to successfully complete this class no prior knowledge is required, however we recommend at least some basic knowledge of programming. Within the class we will cover these topics:
What is git and how it works
Git installation (Windows, Mac)
Vs code installation (Windows, Mac)
Git basic commands (add, commit, branch, checkout, reset and many more)
