Learn Git and GitHub (Common Git Commands)

What is Git and GitHub

  • Git is a version control system.
  • It keeps track on changes that have been made on files.
  • It allow developers to roll back to a previous version of their code.
  • It simplifies working on a project as a team.
  • GitHub is a web based repository that allow developers to work with others online on the same application.
  • GitHub acts as a safe store of your application code. When you accidentally delete your code from your local machine, you can easily pull it back from GitHub.

Pro Tips

  • If you are a programmer make sure to use GitHub or Bitbucket for your projects.
  • This is a great way to show case your skills and keep your code safe. You can also revert changes.
  • Participate on open source projects for networking and to grow your skills. You can also earn some extra income from sponsored projects. (Did you know DEV is open source?)
