Who Can Benefit
This course is intended for teams wanting to collaborate using GitHub, and for developers wanting to improve their Git skills.
To get the most from this course, students should have experience with a programming language and should be familiar with navigating the command line.
Additionally, although it is not mandatory, students who have completed the self-paced Fundamentals of DevOps eLearning course have found it very helpful when completing this course.
Part 1: Git – Basic and Advance Commands
Getting started with Git
Installing Git on Windows
Installing Git on Mac
Installing Git on Linux
Basic Git commands
Initializing a repository
Adding a remote
Pushing to the remote
Pulling from the remote
Creating a branch
Advanced Git commands
Normal merging vs fast-forward merging.
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
Getting started with GitHub
Commit email addresses
Options for 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.
GitHub Organizations can be split up into multiple teams, to mirror the departments of your company. This allows easier control when setting up permissions for users to your repositories.
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.
Creating a repository
Working In Teams
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 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.
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.
Working With Pull Requests
This section will show how pull requests work, create a branch, push some commits, create the pull request, have someone approve and merge.
Creating an issue
Referencing other issues
Commenting on issues
GitHub projects give teams a Kanban board to organize and visualize their work. It's a step up from GitHub Issues.
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.
Classes begin promptly at 9:00 am, and typically end at 5:00 pm.
