About This Course

In this course at codedamn, you'll get to grips with one of the crucial elements of software development - version control, and more specifically, Git, a widely used, open-source, distributed version control software. We will dive into the basics of Git operations, all carried out in a practical, interactive learning setting, enhancing your understanding of how platforms like Github function.

Here we aim to make complex technical subjects simple and approachable. Hence, starting from scratch, you'll install Git and understand its key features at a pace that suits your comfort. The course intertwines the theory behind Git's architecture and practical tasks to ensure a holistic learning experience.

You'll learn how to create Git repositories and manipulate files in a controlled method - adding, changing, deleting, and committing changes to Git. You'll master the art of reviewing commit logs and comparing various commits while also acknowledging the process of pulling back changes and ignoring certain files or folders.

You'll practise using Git log commands efficiently to filter commit logs, a crucial skill for any developer juggling different updates and changes simultaneously. The course covers all the vital aspects of dealing with Git environments, from branching and merging branches to managing merge conflicts and cloning remote repositories. The course doesn't end here. It goes on to impart knowledge about stashing, rebasing, searching, and rewriting history. It will allow you to understand the three different Git Reset states - Soft, Mixed, and Hard.

This course is designed with the intent to enable learners to grasp and implement their learning practically, making it more than just theoretical know-how. This course provides a smooth learning path for beginners venturing into Git.
