Up and Running with Git

This course clearly explains all of the basics of working with Git for web projects. It's for Git beginners but it's also for those of you who have already been using Git but aren't sure why you stage, commit, push, pull, branch, and merge. Being well-versed in modern version control systems like Git is quickly becoming expected, right alongside knowing HTML and CSS. It's not a "nice to have" skill any longer; it's a must-have. Sit down for an hour with Ryan and add Git to your toolbox. You'll be glad you did.
