Version control allows collaborative development which makes it easy for teams to work together on projects.
The effective use of version control is important and a useful skill for developers to have in their tool kit.
Git is a version control system which is like a series of snapshots of your code which can be referenced at any time.
GitHub is a web based graphical interface where you can publish your Git repositories and collaborate with other people or teams. Git and GitHub has become the industry-standard version control and publishing platform . Git allows you to track changes and your development process and when used with GitHub it becomes an effective backup mechanism.
This course is for absolute beginners and will introduce you to the basics of using a version control system called Git and a collaboration platform called GitHub . Although this course does not involve any programming students who have a basic knowledge of programming or simple HTML might find it easier to follow along .
