Course Outline

Part 1: Git - Basic and Advanced Commands

1. Getting started with Git & GitHub

  • Why Git?
  • Installing Git on Windows
  • Installing Git on Mac
  • Installing Git on Linux
  • Signing up to GitHub
  • HTTPS
  • SSH
  • Understanding Git

2. Basic Git Commands

  • Configuration
  • Initializing a repository
  • Adding commits
  • Adding a remote
  • Pushing to the remote
  • Fetching from the remote
  • Pulling from the remote
  • Creating a branch
  • Merging
  • Cloning
  • Reset
  • Revert

3. Advanced Git Commands

  • Amending commits
  • Rebasing
  • Interactive rebasing
  • Cherry-picking
  • Bisect
  • Aliases
  • Hooks
    • Git hooks allow you to run scripts before or after certain Git actions (e.g., modify the commit message prior to committing).

Part 2: GitHub - Team and Enterprise Applications

1. Getting started with GitHub

  • Two-factor authentication
  • Searching GitHub
  • Starring repositories
  • Following people
  • Watching repositories
  • Commit email addresses
  • Notifications

2. Options for teams

  • Organization accounts
    • Organization accounts allow you to combine multiple GitHub users into an organization. A single GitHub user can be a member of several organizations. A repository can also be owned by an organization instead of a single user.
  • Teams
    • Organization accounts allow you to combine multiple GitHub users into an organization. A single GitHub user can be a member of several organizations. A repository can also be owned by an organization instead of a single user.
  • Paid plans
    • GitHub offers a lot of functionality for free. But companies often need more. The paid plans allow things like private repositories, fine-grained access control, extra support, etc.

3. Working in teams

  • GitHub Flow
    • GitHub Flow is an easy branching strategy. It starts from a master branch and creates only feature branches from there. The feature branches only get merged into the master branch when approved and ready for release. This allows a team to have a rapid cadence of releases, but it also creates some requirements that need to be addressed. For example, you will need a good CI/CD pipeline, a business that accepts rapid releases, possibly a good feature toggle system, etc.
  • Git Flow
    • GitFlow is a more complex branching strategy but allows for a more secure development and deployment pace. It's often more fit for larger enterprises. Luckily, there are CLI plugins and GUI tools that support GitFlow and make it easy to work with. This way, developers don't have to remember the specific commands and branching flows.
  • Documentation
  • Issues
  • Projects
    • GitHub projects give teams a Kanban board to organize and visualize their work. It's a step up from GitHub Issues.
  • Releases
    • Git allows developers to create tags in their repositories. In GitHub, you can easily link these tags to "Releases." A release can contain release notes, providing a nice overview of what changed over time.
