What you’ll learn

  • Track and Modify projects using Git
  • Revert/Reset their project to a previous version
  • Create multiple versions of a project and merge them together
  • Collaborate and share projects using Github
  • Understand when and why to use Git and/or Github for version control on a project

Learn Git By Doing

This course is designed to get students working with Git and Github as soon as possible. By the end of the course students will have hands-on experience working with Git and Github and will be able to use Version Control on any project.

Course Principles

  1. Learn By Doing — We believe that the best way to learn is by doing. That is why all of the core videos are designed for you to be able to follow along and reinforce the concepts taught in the video by actually typing along.

  2. 80/20 Rule — With most technologies it takes 20% of the knowledge about the technology to be able to accomplish 80% of the tasks you need to do with that technology. Therefore it’s important to start by learning that crucial 20% that allows you to get up and running with the technology quickly. We still believe that you should learn the rest as well so we’ve included that material in the Advanced Topics section and continue to add to it.

  3. I do, We do, You do — We believe that the best way to learn a new technology is to first observe how it is used, then code along with someone, and finally use the technology yourself. This is why we have our videos along with assignments throughout the course that allow you to solidify what you learned from following along.

Course Structure

The course is split into two main sections: Core Competencies and Advanced Topics.

Within the Core Competencies we first go over using the Terminal for students who have absolutely no experience with the Terminal (this section can easily be skipped by those who already feel comfortable interacting with the Terminal). We teach students how to navigate their folder structure and create files and folders. We then jump straight into Git and teach students how to create repositories and commit changes. We then teach students how to “go back in time” with resetting and reverting before moving on to branching and merging. After teaching the basics of Git we add in Github to show students how to interact with a remote repository and then we go over the proper workflow for collaborating using a remote repository.

After going through the Core Competencies we feel that the student will have a solid foundation to be able to use Git with collaborators on 80% of the tasks they may need to tackle.

In the Advanced Topics section we periodically add content on some more advanced aspects of git including Rebasing, Stashing, advanced Merge scenarios, etc. to make sure that students always have a place to learn the advanced concepts that they may not see too often but still need to know.

  1. Donny Phan

    Super practical. Lessons are catered towards anyone looking to find work in this industry. It felt very comprehensive and gave me a broad understanding of the programming spectrum

  2. Madhav raj Verma

    Thanks for your great effort. i am fully satisfied with this course the way you teach and your explanation are very clear ,The content you provide in your course no one can do this at this price.

  3. Sachin Gupta

    I really didn’t want to leave a low rating as Angela is a great teacher. The 1st half of this course was terrific. The 2nd half was terrible. Under the justification of “teaching students how to figure things out on their own”, pretty much all videos and all explanations were dropped. You were just told what to do, given links to documentation and told to figure it out on your own. I understand doing that to some degree, but to revert to that entirely for nearly half the content barely makes this a course. It’s just a list of things for you to learn, then you’re left on your own to learn them. The 2nd half was so bad, especially the data science component, that I didn’t bother finishing the course.

    Amazing 40 days course.
    Angela is a great teacher.
    The other 60 days are all about web developement, interacting with web pages, on your own with little to no explanations. I did not expect that at all. I wanted to learn more about software and scripting.
    This left me disappointed , confused and i started to doubt myself. Not a fun experience after the amount of effort i’v put in this course.

    Exercices format and explanations for the first 40 days were worth it tho.

  5. Ben K

    Not just an introduction to python, but really helps you learn fundamental aspects of python and coding in general. Some parts may require some knowledge on the subject (data science comes to mind) and there is quite some web development in the course. So, a few areas were not completely to my liking (I would have liked to see it done differently), but this course deserves the 5 stars in my opinion.

  6. Omid Alikhel

    I found the method a bit difficult when a code is written and then changed back to something different, with no enough explanation of how something happened and where it came from or a step by step explanation of why something is happening, i have no doubt in the instructors talent, but we are beginners!

  7. Devang Jain

    The course is not updated and most of the solution codes don’t work and there are no video solutions towards the end

  8. Szymon Kozak

    I think that the course tutor is really good in giving right information to learn at the right time. Thanks to this fact, my understanding of coding in python after 29 days of learning is above my expectations.

  9. Begoña Ruiz Diaz

    Ha sido la mejor elección que podría haber hecho.

  10. Vaibhav Sachdeva

    I want to thank Angela for making such an amazing course. It really helped me explore more things with python.
