Welcome to Git for Everybody (AKA. Git Essentials), the updated version for the modern web developer.
Note: This is the free mini course
This is a course that will teach you enough to get started working with Git and GitHub.
By the end of this course you will have the knowledge and confidence you need to work in a tea and start working on open source projects!
I've worked with several teams over the years and everything you'll learn in this course is what I tend to use almost every day and certainly every week.
Here's the rough outline of everything you'll learn in this course:
How to use Git on the command line (pro tip: it's more important to learn Git from the command line first than it is to learn how to use a visual tool. Servers don't have visual programs ?)
Installing Git on Windows, Mac and Linux
How to configure Git on your computer, and add your SSH key
Creating, cloning and adding files to a GitHub repository
Managing files, commits and branches ⭐️
How to merge branches into other branches ⭐️⭐️
How to view old files from an older time
And much much more!
We'll work through lots of examples together and get you hands on experience with all of this by creating your own repositories and adding work onto mine.

Mini Course Complete & Next Steps
The instructor is well versed with theoretical and practical knowledge on GitHub. I wish his advance course would be free, but nonetheless, with discount I might purchase it. Thank you Kalob
Kalob has been completely on point throughout the course, amazing and easiest explanation. Looking forward to see more of the content.
Perfect! I will want to get most of his courses, I love the way his simple and direct teaching is done, well explained, clear, I'm very glad I took a look on one of his courses, it's definitively not the last!!
This is a GREAT minicourse. It teaches me a lot of stuffs of Git to be in a higher level of good coding practice. Awesome contents and great explanation.
Interesting course found it very useful as someone who prior to the course knew about github/git but didnt really understand it. 4.5 stars as occasionally information was too fast and i had to go over videos several times but that was on the later videos. Overall I feel confident to move my code onto github and will continue learning git. I would recommend this course.
Kalob does a great job getting you started with Git. As a beginner, this course was easy to follow and understand. I am now a lot more enlightened and more comfortable working with Git and Github. Thanks to Kalob.
