Whether you're learning development for the first time, or, you've been at it for years, the concept of version control is critical. If you've ever lost code, or needed to revert to an earlier version of your application, you already understand the need for version control. If you work in a team, GitHub is a requirement to organize and synthesize the path your teams' code takes from first Alpha version to release.
In this course, expert instructor Ed Matthews will show you how to take advantage of not only the Git repository, but also the GitHub community to work with open source code.
From an understanding of the command line GIT utility, to taking advantage of all the GitHub community has to offer, there is no better course. Git and GitHub are being adopted by thousands of professional coding shops each day. Don't be caught without the knowledge you need to succeed!
