Course Description

"Git and GitHub for Poets" is a unique course designed for writers, poets, and artists who are interested in using version control tools to manage their creative work. Git is a powerful version control system used by software developers to track changes in their codebase, while GitHub is a web-based platform that provides hosting for Git repositories. Although these tools are typically associated with programming, they can be used by anyone who needs to manage multiple versions of a project or collaborate with others. This course is specifically tailored to the needs of poets and other creative writers who want to use Git and GitHub to manage their work. The course assumes no prior knowledge of Git or version control, and will start with the basics, such as installing Git and setting up a GitHub account. From there, students will learn how to create repositories, add files, and commit changes. One of the most powerful features of Git is its ability to track changes to a project over time. This can be especially useful for poets and writers, who often revise their work many times before arriving at a final version. With Git, it's easy to see how a poem or story has evolved over time, and to revert to an earlier version if needed. GitHub also provides a number of tools for collaboration, including pull requests and issues. These tools can be used to solicit feedback on a poem or story, or to work with other writers to create a collaborative project. GitHub also allows for easy sharing and distribution of work, making it a great platform for publishing poetry and other creative writing. Throughout the course, students will learn how to use Git and GitHub in a way that is tailored to the needs of poets and writers. The course will provide real-world examples of how these tools can be used to manage creative projects, and will include plenty of hands-on exercises to help students develop their skills. By the end of the course, students will have a solid understanding of how Git and GitHub can be used to manage their creative work, and will be able to apply these tools to their own projects. Whether you're a poet looking to manage your writing more efficiently, or an artist looking to collaborate on a project with others, "Git and GitHub for Poets" is the perfect course to help you get started.
