Goals

  • Working with Git
  • Understanding what is Version Control
  • Difference between Git and GitHub
  • Understanding about Distributed Version Control
  • Becoming comfortable working with git repos
  • Simple explanations for git concepts

Description

The 3 main goals of this course are to:

  1. Build a mental model of Git (version control)
  2. Provide simple explanations
  3. Make how Git works tangible

In this course I explain the basics of Git (version control) in a visual and simple manner. I covers some of the basics of GitHub. I introduce one concept at a time and build from the beginning to the end incrementally. I introduce every new term so that beginners and more experienced folk can follow the course alike!

I want to make sure everyone can get as much out of this course as possible.

Hi, I’m Anna (-: You can follow my work teaching Git and other tech topics on my instagram called @techjourney_with_anna. When I started my first job as a frontend dev I held my breath with fear whenever I had to do anything (I deemed) complicated using Git (half the time believing I was going to destroy the entire repository). And I realised I needed to master it if I was going to continue with confidence on my coding journey. So I started my Git learning journey... Often finding the material I came across didn't explain things in a way that made sense to me. I decided to set out and create the kind of online course I would have liked to have found. Et voila! I hope this course helps you on your Git learning journey! If you are curious to learn more about me, you can generally search me on social channels using my full name: Anna Skoulikari (I am the only Anna Skoulikari on this planet ;) )
