GIT Essentials


From an esoteric Version Control System system developed by and for the Linux Kernel community, to the most dominant Version Control System on the planet in 10 years – Git requires no  introduction. However, hearing about git, and using it effectively in a team, across teams, and most importantly recovering from severe errors – requires discipline, deep understanding of Git internals, and proper training.
This course will tie the knots, and make git both a life saver and a friend, rather than a tool you are forced to use and intimidated by.

Software developers, testers, integrators, application support engineers
