*Free* resources to learn Git and GitHub

What is Git?

Git is the most commonly used version control system. It tracks the changes you make to files, so you have a record of what has been done. Git also makes collaboration easier, allowing changes by multiple people to all be merged into one source.


Why learn Git?

Say, you're working on a project that needs revisions. Committing the changes(you'll learn this in Git) can help in code backup. It's a great way to showcase your work.
Not a difficult thing to learn, certainly much much easier than programming ,at least for me :)
