GitHub is the industry-standard tool for collaborating on and sharing code. Learn the basics, including common uses, workflows, and best practices for GitHub and Git.
- [Instructor] Since you're here, I think it's safe to assume that at some point you've at least heard about GitHub. In this course, we'll explore why GitHub is such a powerful and popular tool among software developers, project managers, team members, designers, students, and, well, the list does on. Before we jump into GitHub and the collaboration-rich features that it provides, you'll be introduced to Git, the popular version control system that GitHub is built upon. If you aren't currently using version control, you may be wondering what all the fuss is about. I'll explain the key benefits of version control, how it all fits within GitHub, and how you can start using both Git and GitHub in your projects today. Hi, I'm Aaron Stewart, LinkedIn Learning author and training content specialist at GitHub. I'm excited to introduce you to this course, Learning GitHub. This course is a great place to start with understanding the basics of GitHub and how you can start using it with your projects right now.
