Join David Powers for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Dreamweaver: Working with Git Version Control.
- [Instructor] If you have access to the exercise files which accompany this course download them from the website, unzip them on your local computer, and use them to create a Dreamweaver site. I've got them here on my desktop, let's take a quick look inside. Unlike most other courses, there's just one set of files. A simple web page with dummy text. A style sheet. And a small selection of images. I haven't created separate copies of the files for each video because the changes being made to the files are not important.
In chapter one I show you how to initialize a Git repository in Dreamweaver. Thereafter, all changes will be recorded in your own version of the repository. The files and the changes made to them are deliberately simple. So you can concentrate on understanding how Git works and how it's being integrated into the Dreamweaver user interface. If you don't have access to the exercise files just create a Dreamweaver site with one of the starter templates.
