Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Gill Cleeren, and welcome to my course, GitHub: Getting Started. I'm the CTO of Xpirit Belgium and work on mobile and web projects. GitHub is the world's favorite social coding platform, and it is used by millions of developers around the globe every single day. A lot of developers use GitHub in combination with Git as their source management system, which is, of course, its main goal. But apart from source control, GitHub is so much more and can help you as a developer with the management of your entire project. This course will teach you how to work with Git and GitHub in an efficient way. You'll learn how to work with GitHub repositories, branches, forks, and pull requests, but GitHub offers much more, including project management, wikis to create documentation, and even static page hosting. Some of the major topics that we will cover include learn the basics of Git and its most commonly used commands using the command line interface, get a deep understanding of GitHub repositories, how you can create branches and forks, understand the GitHub flow using pull requests and perform code reviews, see how you can use GitHub within your organization for project management and creating wikis. By the end of this course, you'll have a good understanding of how you can use GitHub for your personal and professional project and how you can get the most use out of the platform. No prior knowledge is expected for this course. I hope that you will join me on this journey to learn how to use GitHub efficiently with the GitHub: Getting Started course, here at Pluralsight.
