What is GIT?

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.

Why You Should Use GIT

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 and our GIT for beginners course is here to help!

This is a beginner-level GIT tutorial 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.

GIT for Beginner’s Course – What You Will Learn

In our GIT for beginners 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 practice right after you learn each concept. We will test your work to make sure you have written them correctly and also provide feedback.

I'm not a security specialist, but I have realized that the course explains very well every topic and you can use the labs in every lesson to practice. It's a hard certification but using this course I could learn every element step by step and test myself if I was ready using the exam simulators, and I was great because the simulators are very close to a real exam! using this course I got the certification in my first attempt!

Thank you so much Mumshad Mannambeth for the awesome course, I couldn't find better than yours. These courses are well designed with awesome practice labs and have more than the required content to learn and pass the Kubernetes exams. Not sure how you are managing them with these much of low cost.
