What you'll learn in this programming class:

Git, a distributed version control system, is a fundamental tool in modern software development, allowing teams to effectively track and manage changes to projects over time.

GitHub is a code hosting platform for version control and collaboration. With over 28 million users and more than 57 million repositories, it is the largest host of source code in the world and has become the place to be if you want to collaborate with other designers and developers on open-source projects.

In this introductory workshop, you'll learn about the purpose of version control (specifically Git and GitHub), the history and importance of GitHub in the development community, the fundamental concepts of Git, and basic use cases and commands.

  • Familiarity with Git in the command line and GitHub on the web
  • Use version control to track the history of your project like a pro
  • Committing changes using Git in a project
  • Creating branches using Git in a project
  • Pulling and pushing changes to GitHub
  • Understanding project state with git status, git log, and git show
  • A laptop is required
  • Familiarity with HTML & CSS basics, as well as your computer's command-line terminal
  • Install and setup Git on your computer prior to class
