Why learn Mastering Git and GitHub?
Ever wondered what 10 million users and most silicon valley companies like Facebook and Google use for creating and managing open source API's and to help the open source community. It is GitHub, a Git repository hosting service founded just a few years ago to build software better, together.
Most of the high paying companies are using Git and GitHub for their new, innovative and upcoming Software Languages. Open source software's can now be made using GitHub and you will be able to share your repositories with other developers so that they can also contribute. GitHub concepts can be implemented in Big Data and Hadoop technology, Java Projects and other frameworks as well. Some of the trending repositories in GitHub are Scala and AngularJS.
What are the pre-requisites for this Course?
The pre-requisite for this course include knowledge of Microsoft Windows GUI and Windows Command line.
The following will be done by the participants during Project work after creating an account on GitHub:
1. Fork the repository that will be created by the trainer for the project
2. Clone the forked repository on to local machine
3. Create feature branch on the local machine
4. Configure the upstream repo
5. Add some files, edit the files. remove some files and finally commit the changes to the feature branch and push it to the origin repo
6. Create a pull request for other developers
7. Work on the pull request feature and provide comments on GitHub UI
8. Merge the changes from the pull repository of other collaborators to their local repo
9. Push the changes to the main branch and finally delete the feature branches
At the end of your course, you will work on a real time Project. You will receive a Problem Statement along with a data set to work.
Once you are successfully through with the project (reviewed by an expert), you will be awarded a certificate with a performance based grading.
