Miguel10 October 2020

I really liked, but it could be improved in regards the SSH key explanation i felt you went too fast in that part, maybe it's because you didn't had time, but a slightly broader explanation could be good, also i don't know if i miss it but i think the part of going back to a previous snapshot of the project could be explained further, anyway it's a decent course.

ParSha4 October 2020

Thorough overview of using Git and Github. This is a great introduction, but extra self practice is definitely necessary to become fluent. This would go great if you have a project in mind that you'd like to start so you can follow along. Thanks for taking the time to put this together!

Ajay29 September 2020

I know git hub but not this much. And i like every video in this course very detailed on explaining topics Thank you for the amazing course i loved it -> Alpha-tech @vald

Vaibhav26 September 2020

At the beginning of the course: The way you explain the concept is awesome and the best part is to relate the problems with real-life scenarios, it is the best way to understand any problem. I think I'm gonna enjoy this course a lot. After finishing up the course: As I said before "I'm gonna enjoy this course"... this is what I did... It was nice and the knowledge and information I get from you are so awesome. Thanks for being my mentor in this course. Thank you.

Joseph20 September 2020

The course is great! The teacher is really engaging and makes everything simple enough to learn from. He won't bore you with unnecessary details and coding but is straight forward.

Saswat16 September 2020

The concepts are explained in details even though it is a crash course. A great one for anyone looking for a quick learn on Git and GitHub.

Samia13 September 2020

Yes, It was good although I still need some more tutorials. But I got the basic of GIT and GITHUB. Thank you.

Romit11 September 2020

Git commands not covered properly. Resolving merge conflicts was not explained as it was in agenda and how to revert was also not explained

David11 September 2020

I was expecting the course to cover also branches as in my perspective it is the trickiest part of working with Git

Sara10 September 2020

it was a good and compact tutorial, I recommend it to beginners in git & github. if i want to suggest some changes, is a little more content about how to create readme files on github. Thanks

Klaudiusz4 September 2020

All informations mentioned in this course are very well explained, but some of important one are missed, but it is understandable because it is crash course. Even though, i truly recomend this course. After this course and some other resources found in internet you will be able to work with Git and Github without any problems

Felipe2 September 2020

This one is straight to the point. No bla bla, you just get the basics and start using Git. Highly recommended for beginners. Congratulations for the hard work! Keep it up!

Sagar1 September 2020

The course was good. Every concept was explained properly. The only thing that I found not entertained is Readme.md.A little bit of explanation about it would enhance the knowledge about git and GitHub.

Manvik27 August 2020

Yes, the course was great and the instructor was amazing. The only thing that could be improved was if the correct subtitles be added to the videos.

Oded26 July 2020

Very professional. Such a great CRASH COURSE! Saved me a lot of time. I definitely recommend this course!
