Book Description

This course introduces version control, its relevance, and usage. In the first part, you'll learn how to set up and configure Git on your computer. Then, you'll create a repository and use it for exercises throughout the course. Through multiple demos, you'll learn concepts that show various stages of a file - from when it is untracked to when it is set for tracking under version control. You'll see how to navigate the history of a repository, fetch and deliver code to GitHub, and undo code changes. The first part ends with you learning to work with branches, storing and retrieving changes temporarily, and merging the desired changes into a repository.

In the second part, you learn forking as a collaborative workflow. You'll learn addressing modularity and duplication through submodules, tracing and rectifying faulty changes, and maintaining repositories. The second part ends with you learning how to deploy applications using GitHub.
