About this event

Git is a very common version control tool that developers use to help organize their code.  In this class, you will learn how to set up Git for your own coding projects and become familiar with how to use Git - repositories, committing, and branching.  Best practices for Git will be discussed, as well as a short overview of the command line (however, highly recommend taking our class as an introductory course:!)  If there is time, there will be a short introduction to Github.

The workshop will be a mix of lectures and hands-on exercises. It will be taught by Jessica Parsons, Documentation Engineer at Netlify. 

This workshop is highly recommended for anyone attending our frontend workshop series.
