Introduction to Git & Github
The basics of Git & Github - learn how other people build software.
What is this course?
Learn how to use Git and Github to allow your project to have “versions”, which shows the changes that were made to the code over time, and allows you to roll back if necessary and undo those changes. This becomes invaluable when working on large projects or on projects that have multiple people editing the same codebase.

- What it Git?
- How to Install it and set up for a new project.
- How to use Git commands and what they are.
- How to use Github and what it is for.

My journey to becoming a Web Developer involved lots of hard work, online courses, meetups and much advice from strangers online. Today I am a Full Stack Engineer working in London and love helping others reach their goal of learning to code.
I have been teaching others to code for over 3 years now via workshops, talks, group projects, one-on-one mentoring and I absolutely love watching students get better every day and becoming Engineers themselves. Taking a decision to change your life, switch careers and learn to code is very brave and I hope I can help along the way and steer in the right direction.
