About this event

Course description: 

Git is a distributed version control system, it can be used as a server out of the box. Dedicated Git server software adds access control, display the contents of a Git repository via the web, and help to manage multiple repositories.

GitHub is a Git repository hosting service, but it adds many of its own features. While Git is a command line tool, GitHub provides a Web-based graphical interface. It also provides access control and several collaboration features, such as wikis and basic task management tools for every project.

The workshop will be a mix of lectures and hands-on exercises and is highly recommended for anyone attending our frontend workshop series. It will be taught by Jessica Parsons, Documentation Engineer at Netlify, and Hanah Yendler, Front End Developer at SEPHORA.
