Course Description

Git and GitHub are essential tools for software developers, and this tutorial is designed to introduce beginners to the basics of version control and collaborative coding using these tools. Git is a version control system that allows developers to track changes to their code over time. This allows them to collaborate with other developers, work on multiple versions of the same project, and easily revert to previous versions if necessary. GitHub, on the other hand, is a web-based platform that provides hosting for Git repositories, as well as a range of collaboration tools. This tutorial will cover the basics of Git, including how to set up a Git repository, commit changes, and merge changes from multiple branches. It will also cover more advanced Git topics such as branching and merging, resolving conflicts, and working with remote repositories. The tutorial will also cover how to use GitHub to collaborate with other developers. This includes setting up a GitHub account, creating a repository, inviting collaborators, and using GitHub's pull request workflow to review and merge changes. Additionally, the tutorial will cover how to use GitHub's issue tracking system to manage project tasks and bugs. Throughout the tutorial, participants will work through hands-on exercises to apply the concepts they learn. They will create a Git repository, make changes to files, create and merge branches, and collaborate with other participants using GitHub. By the end of the tutorial, participants will have a basic understanding of Git and GitHub and be able to use them to manage their own software development projects. They will also be familiar with the best practices for collaborating with other developers and managing code changes in a team environment. This tutorial is ideal for beginners who have no prior experience with Git and GitHub or those who have only used them sparingly. It is also suitable for developers who want to refresh their knowledge of these tools or learn new tips and tricks for using them more efficiently. Author: (The Net Ninja)
