Description

The 3 main goals of this course are to:

  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.

unfortunately the sound is not as good. So for non-native speaker it might be hard to understand what is said. But anyway a good intro in Git and GitHub.

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 ;) )
