Course Overview
Understanding the fundamentals of Git, the popular version control system, can make your life so much easier if you're working on any type of file-based project that needs version control. Learning a new subject, especially a technical one, can be a difficult and stressful experience, but knowing where to start can make all of the difference. My name is Aaron Stewart, and my latest course is Getting Started with Git. Now I've been a Git advocate and GitHub enthusiast for several years now, but I can still remember the challenges I faced when learning Git for the first time. I wanted to learn from content that was fun, relatable, and interactive. I found great content in several places, but I never found one great resource that had all three. This course will teach you the fundamentals of Git by taking you on a journey with Steve, a local coffeeshop owner, where you'll take a hands-on approach to learn Git while working on his coffeeshop recipe project. You'll learn why Git is such a popular version control system choice, not just for software developers, but for project managers, team members, students or really anyone who wants the flexibility to keep track of changes to any type of file-based project. You'll also learn what GitHub is, and how it can transform your Git project to the next level. And the great thing about Git is that you don't even have to be a computer geek to use it. After this course, you'll harness the power of Git, and be well on your way to becoming a Git master.
