Git is the most commonly used version control system. Git tracks the changes you make to files, so you have a record of what has been done, and you can revert to specific versions should you ever need to. Git also makes collaboration easier, allowing changes by multiple people to all be merged into one source. It’s an important skill for any coder to have.

Git can seem mysterious at first, in part because many people use the command line to run Git. In this class we'll demystify Git and explain the typical workflows you'll encounter. We'll cover the most commonly used Git features to get you up and running quickly. 

We'll focus on using the terminal commands (which are not as scary as you might think), but once you understand how Git works, you could use a desktop app (or Git integration in some code editors) if you want to use a GUI (graphical user interface) instead of the command line.
