Hi hubr, I continue to share useful picks. I’ve posted posts with Github repositories before ( Part 1 and Part 2 ), as well as a selection from 10 books for developers Decided, don’t stop 🙂 Anyone who’s interested, welcome under the cat.
It’s no secret that both Git and GitHub are standard source code management and storage systems for developers. There was a time when different ways of version control were controlled by systems like CVS, SVN, VSS, Mercury, and TFS, but slowly but surely everything has come together in Git.
Right now, about 70-80% of programmers actively use Git in their work. However, when it comes to using source control tools like SVN or CVS, most programmers use IDEs like IntelliJIDEA or Eclipse, even though they are barely familiar with the command line.
Tools like Git bash and a number of useful Git commands have encouraged programmers to use Git both on the command line and in IDEs. That’s why it’s simply vital for a developer to know key Git commands like
git status ,
git add ,
git commit ,
git push and their standard options.
I couldn’t pass by without telling you about some useful Git courses. I’ve put together 7 free and paid Git courses for beginners and experienced programmers alike. They’ll help you understand the basic principles and tricks of working with Git. I hope you’ll enjoy them.
The course, created by Jason Taylor, is a step-by-step guide to the entire Git workflow, teaching you how to compare different file states in Git, manage files, create and modify repositories on GitHub, etc. The course has a good rating of 4.4.
I couldn’t help but tell you about one of Bibhash Roy’s most comprehensive courses on Git and Github. This course will introduce you to pretty much everything you’ll ever need to know about Git. This course also has a good rating of 4.3.A great course to learn Git from the bottom up to the advanced level.
A free course with a 4.3 rating to help you learn Git and Github quickly and painlessly. If you’ve just joined a new company or started a project that will use Git, this course is just right for you.
In spite of the fact that the course is only 4.5 hours long, it’s quite comprehensive and covers all the most important Git topics. It covers the theory and workflow of Git, repositories, and other equally important things.
Another great and comprehensive course on Git from Udemy. It includes an interpretation of basic concepts and a look at the main tasks of Git, lots of commands such as
git add ,
git status ,
git log ,
git commit ,
git pull ,
git push and others. A good course with a 4.4 rating.
This is Jill Clearen’s course, Pluralsight, designed to teach you about Git and Github. Here you’ll learn about creating repositories, committing files, making changes to a remote repository, troubleshooting commits, and many other Git features.
Unfortunately, you’ll have to splurge to learn the course. You must have a Pluralsight membership, which costs $29 a month or $299 a year to get access. However, it is possible to take advantage of the A 10-day free trial. , which provides 200 minutes of access to all of their classes.
An advanced course on learning Git for programming and development. You’ll learn a lot of useful stuff about commits, branches, merges, squashing, and so on. Basically everything you need to know as a developer. The course contains a lot of practical tasks.
The practice section offers exercises for every taste and color :
- Initializing a new Git repository
- Making changes, adding to preparations, and committing
- Creating, checking and merging branches, etc.
I would say this is the perfect course for the software developer who wants to become one of the best in the subject.
The last course I want to recommend to you is a course to learn the commands and concepts of Git on Udemy. It will help you quickly learn how to use Git in everyday software development, teach you how to use Git with Sourcetree and Bitbucket, basic Git commands and concepts for working on Github projects, etc.
Not as comprehensive as the previous courses, but I recommend it for anyone who needs to work in Bitbucket and Sourcetree.
I hope this selection will be useful not only to those who are starting to learn Git and Github from scratch, but also to those who want to refresh their knowledge or learn Git in more detail and maybe help some of you on your way to becoming good at it.
