GIT for Beginners

Learn Git with simple visualisations, animations and by solving lab challenges

What is the single most important tool that Developers and Operations teams must know alike today? Git! Git is a distributed version control system that allows developers and operations teams to collaborate and keep track of the changes made on a project. GIT as a DevOps tool empowers collaboration and faster release cycles. Anyone willing to start their DevOps career or level up should start from the basics, and GIT is the most fundamental requirement of all.

Many of the most popular open source projects today are developed on Github – Kubernetes, Ansible, Tensor Flow, Rust, Node.js, Go, Terraform, Helm Charts being some of the top ones among the 100 million repositories. If you would like to learn and contribute to these projects, understanding Git is a must!

This is a beginner level course and is well structured with lectures and labs for those who are absolute beginners to GIT. System Administrators, Developers or IT engineers who do not have any prior experience may go through this course to gain basic knowledge of GIT. In this course, you’ll learn how to get up and running with Git, how to use it in your daily life, and get a deeper understanding of what Git actually is under the hood. This course consists of 19 sections that will all get you more familiar with Git and its possibilities. We’ll cover the possibilities of local and remote Git repositories, adding version control to your project by using branches, and useful commands that make working with these branches even more powerful, such as fetching, pulling, rebasing and cherry-picking. Besides some common Git commands, we’ll also cover the internals of Git, and how it’s actually working under the hood! This course is project based. So you will be working as part of a team and you will learn how to share your work among your team members. Our embedded hands-on labs will make sure you gain enough hands-on practice right after you learn each concept. We will test your work to make sure you have written them correctly and also provide feedback.
