Intro to Version Control Using Git

Learn the basics of version control and Git, what is it, and why we use it.

This class is targeted at beginner and intermediate levels.

Prerequisites: beginner coding experience (just starting out)

Version control is the management of changes to documents, computer programs, large web sites, and other collections of information.

Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency. Git is easy to learn and has a tiny footprint with lightning fast performance.


This is a one day workshop on Saturday, November 10th. The class runs from 10am-2pm. We ask that people arrive by 9:45, so that we can get started on time.

We will have an hour break for lunch around noon. Lunch is not included in the cost of class. There is a Panera Bread and a Jimmy John's close by in Bakery Square.


Students are required to bring their own laptop for classes. If you do not have a laptop, please contact us at [masked] before registering, and we’ll see if we can work something out.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
