Working with Git

Source Control using Git Training Course

The Working with Git course is focused on helping software developers , dev-ops, system administrators, and q/a teams move from a version control system like Subversion or CVS to Git.

Working with Git covers all of the fundamental operations an experienced coder would use on a daily basis. The course begins with an introduction to Git and a comparison of Git to other version control systems. It then transitions into the nuts-and-bolts of working with Git, including everything from setting up a repository to advanced topics like branching and merging. You’ll also learn how to incorporate Git with common IDEs like Eclipse, IntelliJ, WebStorm, and others.
