Ultimate GIT 5-day challenge
A challenge that gives you five days of activities as a challenge for getting into Git using GitHub
This course is a five-day challenge, intended to get your feet wet with "GIT".
Git is one of the top Source Control Management (SCM) systems in the world today. With GitHub and BitBucket, it is extremely easy and beneficial for developers to leverage Git to manage version control of your source code.
However, GIT is NOT just for developers. In fact, it is for EVERYONE. If you do any work with files that would benefit from version control, GIT is the safe and secure answer for you. Learning GIT allows you to never again worry about a hard-drive crashing, which version of your file is in what folder, and/or how you can reset your documents for reuse over and over again.
Are you editing photos? GIT is for you.
Are you creating websites? GIT is for you.
Do you use spreadsheets (or other files) and need to keep versions or reset to a default often?
Are you a writer, and you are fearful of losing your work as you create your new book?
Are you coding with a programming language? GIT is for you.
Do you teach and have lots of rubrics? GIT is for you.
Do you manage developers and want to understand GIT? Clearly, GIT is for you!
Best of all, you can get setup with GIT completely free from ANY PC, MAC, or LINUX machine.
By the end of this course, you should have a solid view of what GIT is about, and know if GIT is something you would want to know more about in the future!
I'm looking forward to working with you through this challenge!
