Git is a widely-used version control system for code repositories. Companies use Git to safely make changes to their code bases, track those changes across time, and combine or even undo changes made if needed. In this lab-exclusive course, you'll learn everything you need to start using Git by working in several hands-on, real-world scenarios.

Learning Objectives

The aim of this course is to prepare you to be able to manage Git in your own repositories, by teaching you to:

  • Install Git in your code repositories
  • Use Git to safely make changes to your code
  • Track changes made to your code, including when they were made and by whom
  • Edit, merge and roll back changes made in your codebase

Intended Audience 

This course is suitable for developers, engineers, and anyone else who uses code.


There are no prerequisites for this course. However, a basic knowledge of the principles of code will be helpful.
