Engaging lecture and notes covering the essentials of using Git and GitHub.
By Brian Yu
The course focuses on teaching you just enough to get started working with Git and GitHub.
The course doesn't include quizzes or exercises, so if you take this course, be sure to supplement with some practice to get your hands dirty before launching into using Git and GitHub regularly. This practice is best done locally on your own system, but if you prefer a browser-based solution for more practice, try Learn Git Branching.
This course is a bit light on coverage of some crucial professional-level features like writing good commit messages, resolving complicated merge conflicts, or using GitHub Actions or Hooks. This course is best understood as a foundational quickstart.
