Awesome !!! I tried to learn git many times but things always slips over my head but I was fortunate enough to stumble upon this course and voila, I have learned so much in this course. Thanks a lot.
Awesome and well balanced course for working professionals. Clear explanations and coverage of typical use case scenarios. The labs were manageable and did not require a lot of time to complete them.

Excellent course with a great teacher! Unfortunately, there were some unexpected and frustrating challenges in assignments 3 and 4 due to the changed authentication procedures on GitHub since the preparation of the course, hence I believe that those assignments should be updated.

The concepts and theory of version control system are presented in a well structured manner in this course. I have learnt a lot out of this course. On thing this course lakes is practice assignment and graded assessments are also not very intensive. Overall a good course.
The technical overview of the "How" of committing to open source projects is a useful refresher, and the points on Git automation were useful. However, I would observe that having everyone sign the Google code of conduct as part of the process feels a little Orwellian.

The explanations were clear and very easy to understand. The only problem is that graded assignments are too easy, and don't let go of your hand. They don't let the student have a chance to fail, him or her just has to follow a step by step instruction...

One of the good courses on Coursera for learning VCS. For beginners who want to learn remote version control especially GitHub, this course is the best. Knowledge of the instructor and the way he teaches makes the course contents more interesting.

This course was missing updated details in token authentication or it was not mentioned as an update at end of Qwicklab. I had a hard time understanding the big picture of git and its use of github and the use of CLI to work with Repositories.

The material is a little outdated (i.e. github does have CI/CD now, default branch names have changed, 2FA is encouraged) but the basics don't change. It is a solid grounding in how to use git both locally, and via remote hosting such as GitHub.

It was a bit too easy. The vids/labs should have had a lot more real world hands-on examples of longer durations. Ideally we should have been teamed up too (with a bot would be fine) to simulate some of the issues faced in the real world.
by Gabriel M•
It gives a lot of practical examples and you go practicing at the same pace that the instructor explains, at the end it gets quite complex and you need to re watch the videos several times to understand or search for other resources

This topic is good to know. I used two computers to follow along all the changes. The quizzes and assessments were not the most helpful. I did think it was cool when my work from one computer showed up perfectly on the other.

This course helped me understanding git workflow which is super useful for collaborating with other developers and even for creating a small project. The last part was a little tricky but I will tackle it with more practice

Challenging class. Best to take the class with a linux computer. Practice loading some code to Github before taking class. Instructor is nice. There is so much material in this class. Take as many notes as possible.

The video lectures are great. But the quiz are too short and straightforward. Maybe some more questions to remind us the details would be better.
Also, it would be helpful if the history tree were showed more often.

It was a great oportunity to get started with Git and GitHub. Thanks to all the team for putting all the content and the labs together for me to comprehend and extract the most of this tools. God bless you all!!!
by Kin W•
I like this course very much, the contents are really helpful for my future projects. One thing I wish it can improve on is from the explaining rebasing. a more detail explanation with animation tree would help.
by Mahmoud E•
The course is very powerful end enjoyable, statrted from the base and every lesson and module increase the knowlege until it reach to the required state where we can put all things together in smoothly way

The first part of the course was really very good. I felt that the second part of the course was a little fast paced and should have been spread over 3 weeks to also include the concepts in more details.
by Henrique S R•
Great course and instructor! The peace was slow enough for a good fixation of the concepts. The only thing I missed was more practice in code collaboration on GitHub, like the last Lab of the course.
by Abu J M A•
Need some more demonstration with practical. But overall its really awesome course. I learned a lot of things about git, github, vcs etc. Thanks google and coursera for such a wonderful course.

This was a really nice course. The instructor didn't bore. Also apart from the main idea i also gained insights to many other tools along the course too.It' feels nice to accomplish the course.

Excellent kick starter for Git and Github. Lab 3 hasn't been updated and in Lab 4 you would benefit from knowing Python. For all the rest, it is an excellent preparation course. Thank you!
by Richard J P•
The course was a great into to Git and Github. My one negative feedback is that the graded assessments (labs) were far too easy and didn't really cover everything that was discussed.
by Stas Nordloh•
pretty quick and easy course, great introduction and i learned about github. I thought it was complex but now that i understand the basics, i understand how useful it is as a tool.
by Luca T•
Very interesting course. As a suggestion you could tell something about the add-on GitHub Desktop that is really easy to use and sometimes more used than the command prompt...
by Joe B•
Videos where very in-depth, really easy to understand. Qwiki tests seemed a bit un-related to the videos sometimes and only touched on a small amount of the material.
