Why learn Git?
Git is the industry standard for software version control systems.
Usage ranges from single person projects on code hosting platforms such as Github, over major Free and Open Source communities such as Qt, the Linux Kernel or Android, to massive proprietary code bases such as Microsoft Windows.
It is readily available on all major operating systems, usually for free, does not require a dedicated server or similar infrastructure, and is commonly supported by developer tools such as IDEs.
Target Audience: Development teams who need to work on software collaboratively or who maintain a delivered/deployed version while simultaneously working on new features for the next one.
Prerequisites: This course is suitable for all developers, no specific prior experience needed
