Git + GitHub

Git is the world's most popular version control system for code, and paired with Microsoft's GitHub, a place to store code, it's an essential part of coding.

On this course, you'll not only learn the essentials of working with both Git and GitHub, but also the best practices for coding within a team such as branching, forking and pull requests.

You'll also get to grips with command lines, learn to work with GitHub Pages, Netlify and Heroku, and find out why did they call it 'git' in the first place!

Here’s how we’re different...

Support that actually helps.

Forever-access to our online Slack community of creative students from around the world, learning to code together, plus a Q+A section on every page. With our team based worldwide, we can support you whether you're coding early in the morning or late at night.

Real-world projects you'll want to create and remix.

Our course is practical, unlike other programs that take forever before you make your first real-world project. We care about design and focus on creative industries — it's not a computer science lecture, you're learning to make projects you'd want to make.

Structured, and flexible.

Our course is set-up to deliver real projects – no bullshit! – and we designed it so it’s totally flexible. While you can learn at your own pace, we’ll be here to guide you through-out your learning.

Design focused.

You don't need to be creative to take our courses, but everything we do is focused on making beautiful sites you actually want to make. This isn't your average code school — we focus on the practical aspect of learning.

Who is the course for?

Anyone who is looking to start, or get better at, working with Git and GitHub. If you're working within a team or working on complex projects, Git is a key part of a coding workflow.

This is a beginner course with no requirements apart from being comfortable using a computer. If you use programs like Microsoft Word or Photoshop without trouble, you're good to go

Most of our students work in the creative industries – designers, strategists and copywriters are the most common jobs amongst our students – but you can work in any industry to join the course.

What do I need?

A computer with Mac OS X 10.9 or above, Windows XP or above, or a recent Linux version installed and a broadband internet connection. That’s it!
