The Complete Git & GitHub Course

If you create websites, web applications or mobile apps, or in general, if you write any type of code, then, it's always good to use a version control system. This course will teach about one of the most popular and widely used version control systems today.  

Nowadays any professional developer or designer needs to know how to work with Git and GitHub. Git allows you to record different versions of your project and lets you go back in time and check previous states of the project. As for the GitHub, it's an online service where you can share your code to the world and also it allows us to collaborate with different developers. so you if you want to learn those things then this is the right course for you.

The course consists of lots of different topics. We will start from Git basics, where you can learn about how to install Git. We will go through the basics of the terminal, we will create our first local repository, and you will see how to save different versions of the project, as the snapshots, using commits

Next, we will move on and learn about how to go back in time and check the previous states of the project, update them or even delete with help of git checkout, git revert, and git reset.

Once we get some solid knowledge about Git, then we will start learning about the basics of GitHub. We will go through the topics, such as creating the repository on GitHub, connecting the local repository to a remote one, making commits and much more.

Next, we will move on and see how to work with one of the greatest features of Git, which is branching. You will learn about how to deal with branches locally and also, remotely. After that, we will refer to kinda complex stuff. We will show you how to merge branches with different methods, and also, how to deal with merge conflicts

Next, it should be followed by forking and contributing. You will learn about how to copy someone else's remote repository on your GitHub account, how to clone it to your local computer and how to contribute to the original project.

Finally, we will discuss how to collaborate on GitHub. We will go through some really important topics, such as, how to set up a collaboration team, how to define different rules for collaborators and much other stuff. 

Throughout the course, if you have any questions, then you can feel free and post them in the Q/A section, you will get fast and helpful support.
