Git for Software Developers

Requirements

  • No prior experience required.

Let me start by saying that given Git’s prominence in the software industry, you’re 100% guaranteed to need to know Git. So, the only remaining question is what’s the best way to master this essential tool.

In this course you’ll learn all the important stuff about Git: what Git is, why you need it as a software developer and how to use Git productively in your own projects. You’ll see how Git makes you a better developer, where it saves you from critical mistakes, how it enables collaboration with other developers and much more. By the end of this course, you’ll realize how useful Git is and won’t be willing to work without Git ever again!

This course is aimed at (and tailored for) software developers who use Git professionally on a daily basis. As a software developer, you’ll often find yourself interacting with Git tens, or even hundreds of times a day. Therefore, it’s important to make yourself comfortable and productive with this tool. This course will provide you with all the required knowledge and skills.

The structure of this course will allow you to grasp Git in steps, one new concept at a time. I decided to use a real application as a tutorial project, so you’ll see interesting examples and get a chance to learn not just Git itself, but also the best practices for utilizing its power.

Git is very powerful, but also very complex tool. Multibillion companies like GitHub were built on top of Git. Therefore, an attempt to cover even half of Git’s features would require impractical investment of effort on your part. Therefore, to spare your time, in this course I decided to teach just the features and techniques that you need to know as a professional software developer. So, just note that this course is not a “complete course”, but a “practical course for professionals who value their time and want to be productive”.

If this sounds interesting, welcome aboard and let’s start learning!
