In this free three hour course limited to 95 participants and hosted at Redfin's beautiful downtown office, come learn the fundamentals of version control with Git.
For the uninitiated, Git is like 'save game' for your entire directory structure - if something goes wrong, you'll have the power to go back in time to when your code was working. You'll also be able to deploy specific saves, called 'commits' to cloud application platforms like Heroku and GitHub and interact with large and complex open source projects that use Git to keep things straight. Those, plus many more tasks Git is used for by professional developers across the web.
Core topics covered include: configuring Git on your machine, basic directory navigation in bash, working with local repositories, working with remote repositories, working with branches, checking for differences between commits, pull requests, merging and rebasing.
