Join Ray Villalobos for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Learning Git and GitHub.
- Up and Running with Git and GitHub is not a beginner course. It's meant to be a fast and practical introduction to most of the commands you'll use when working with Git and GitHub. I expect you to know how to work with your file system, have some experience creating web projects, and understand how to work with the Terminal application on a Mac, and something like Git Bash on a PC. If you need help understanding Terminal commands then check out Unix for Mac OS X Users with Kevin Skoglund. You may also want to take a look at Up and Running with Bash Scripting with Scott Simpson.
If you're looking for a really detailed and comprehensive introduction to Git, then please check out Git Essential Training.

So let's get started, Up and Running with Git and GitHub.
