This is a great course if you are new to GIT, or even if you know it already, but want a refresher. It really does just give you the basic commands, but to most, that is all you will ever need. If you are requiring something a bit more advanced, then try the 'GIT Real' course instead. Personally, I have used GIT before doing this course, and didn't learn much that I already knew but it was still great as a 'refresher' and I did actually learn a couple of things that I didn't know. Great, and FREE!
I have been using Git for the last few months and this course already taught me something new. I really like the layout of the course. A true designer must have thought this out! Thank you.
An introduction to basic comands and conveys how straight-forward the commands are to use. I will need to spend some more time on my own to become familiar with them and to figure out why and when they should best be used
As expected, the Try Git course was superb. Besides being nice tech-wise, it is also very well written and inserted in a humorous theme. Good job!
Best way to start in GIT World, thanks a lot!
Thanks for this amazing stuff
An informative intro and brush up for using Git.
Will definitely try other courses soon. Initial target will be Git Real or NodeJS. Thanks.
I liked the course as a basic introduction. It covered the basics to get you going. There was useful information provided along the bottom of the screen which I had to scroll to get to, with the large space at the top and then the command window. It'd be nice to be able to style the page differently based on user preference, perhaps giving the chance to put the top section and the code window side-by-side instead of vertically stacked. A switch to allow different layouts would be nice. I know that you have to aim it at a simpler level so I did not get too frustrated with the cutesy aspects of it. Really, though, if you are learning about Git you are already not the average bear, so maybe a little lighter on the fluffiness would be better. Also, along the lines of the configurability I suggested above it'd be nice to be able to have the very useful information from the bottom section be readable in-line or adjacent to the top area. Overall, worth the time I spent on it. Getting me thinking about taking another one of your courses.
Got me up and running. I approve.
The best way to start practicing Git.
This was the most helpful Git lesson by far. After completion, I was able to update and push my projects to Github with no problem.
While this is a short and sweet interactive tutorial on Git, you will get your hands dirty with the basics of git. Anyone that works on the same code base day-after-day needs to use git to save themselves from themselves. To error is human, to not make a backup is darn right idiotic. Git is popular, and eliminates much of the guess work of where and what stage the back up in. Mahalo Envy Labs for making a good starter to git.
A good short intro and best of all it's free!
I had read many times about Git and Github but had no idea what it exactly was. Now after 25 minutes I got a good basic notion, thank you...
It only covers the basics (as expected) but already provides a good help to start using git.
Try Git was a great experience to get an introduction to using Git through the command line. I use a GUI app normally, but am considering giving the command line more of a try now because of its ease of use.
I thought this was a great introduction to the Git version control system. I taught myself Git and have been using it for the past 18 months but still learned something while completing this course. I didn't know about using the '*.ext'
I really enjoy the interactivity of the code school courses. A huge amount of effort must go into building web apps that allow in-browser coding securely and quickly and Envylabs does a great job of this. As a company they should be very proud of what they've built. Learning by Doing really does help your comprehension and retention of these subjects.
I've been a Gitter for two or three years, and wish I'd had this little nubbin of an introduction at the beginning. I did not learn much from this, really, except that it gave me a nice bird's-eye view that I never caught before. I'll move on to the next module and see if this gives me something to sink my teeth into.
