Course Details

Course Outline

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 commits
  • Adding a remote
  • Pushing to the remote
  • Pulling from the remote
  • Creating a branch
  • Merging

Advanced Git commands

  • Commit --amend

  • Cherry-picking
  • Bisect
  • Aliases

Part 2: GitHub – Team and Enterprise Applications

Getting started with GitHub

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

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
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Repositories
  • Creating a repository
  • Setting permissions

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 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
  • 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.
  • Documentation
  • Readme
  • Markdown files
  • Wiki
  • GitHub pages
  • Issues
  • Creating an issue
  • Referencing other issues
  • Referencing commit
  • Commenting on issues
  • Labeling issues
  • Closing 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.

I thought the course was informative and the tools to go over the material were very nice.

Some Labs are very good but some steps it ask to update but its already updated, but overall its very good training.

Labs and the study materials provided for Architecting on AWS course are very easy to understand and explains all the topics required to pass the Associate certification.

Great company -- easy to sign up and very organized. Loved my teacher and class overall.

Although there seemed to be too many links for the course, everything worked smoothly.
