This is a comprehensive course on Git which means no prior knowledge or experience is needed but after taking this course, students will have a very strong understanding and hands-on with Git and other version control concepts.
In this course, you will learn about Git commands, how to use them in real- world, we will also cover centralized and Distributed workflows .
How the course is structured:
This course is divided into modules and each module have units inside them. The first module “Introduction to git version control” provides an overview about Git and sets the stage for rest of the course. In this module, we will also cover how to install Git on windows and will start setting up our repository.
In the second module “Git basics“, we will go through some basic commands which are needed to start a brand new project and then we will start doing commits, along with common file operations like moving and deleting files. We will also cover how to view commit history.
In the third module, “Best practices for Merging and Branching” we will deep into branches, we will create different branches for every development feature we need in the project and once each development feature is fully tested, then we will merge the branch to the master.
In this module, we will go through some best practices to follow during branching and merging. And also in case of merge-conflict, how to resolve these conflicts.
With a strong understanding of branching and merging, we will then cover a more complex topic, Rebasing.In “Rebasing ” module we will cover what is rebasing,how it is different than doing merge.
We will also go through interactive rebase with which we can change our commits,merge two or more commits into one, split a commit into multiple , change commit messages and lot more.
In the fifth module “Remote repository” we will set up a remote repository and will see how to make connections to this repository to fetch and push new changes from another repository.
In the last module, we will set up a centralized and distributed repository and will go through fetch and pull commands in detail.
