Great course, should be a pre-requisite or additional reading to any intro data science course using Git. Straight-forward, not overly taxing to your time, and full of practical application exercises.
Awesome Course, Learned many new things, I am using git for my day-to-day work, but this course gave me in-depth knowledge of each work and each command that I execute and will execute in the future.
This course is well organized and describes the working of commands with ample detail. I found it interesting and informative. Though I had previous knowledge about Git/GitHub, I got to learn many new concepts like Pull requests, Rebasing, Rewriting Histories etc. However, I suggest, This course can include more hands-on work or talk regarding any real-world project to give broad idea to participants regrading the application of concepts learned. It is a valuable course though.

Learning both tools, Sourcetree and Command Line, were extremely helpful and relevant to my work flow with my remote team. In fact in the middle of this course, our team was given additional training on rebasing, and it was so gratifying that I understood how it worked. Videos and lessons here concise, pertinent and well-produced. Repeating the material, from SourceTree to CLI, with its nuances made the work -- and my progress -- more indelible. This will last.

I am working as a functional designer in a team with developers and testers. In order to understand their work I wanted to learn about Version Control in GIT. Also I will use it myself to a certain extent. This course helped me a lot by learning the logic behind GIT version control. Now when a developer explains me something about GIT I don't just have to take his/her word for it, but I also understand it. This course helped me a lot.

I have used Git at work for a couple of years now. Despite this, I found some things in this course that I did not know like different Git work flows, a better understanding of the internal workings of Git, as well as other ways of merging (like squash merge). Can highly recommend this course to people who are new to Git as well as people with Git experience who never got the full Git tour. Very good lectures and assignments.

Git from A to Z, this course explains it all. There's a thousand course online that claim to teach Git in 10 minutes, but when you take this one, you understand that they just show the surface. I was using Git at work but I always felt that there are many aspects that I don't fully grasp. After taking this course, I'm now aware of everything that should or can be done, why it's done, and how to do it right.

Very helpful indeed. I was a complete noob, when my boss asked me to start our repo for the project, and now I can use Git very efficiently.
The good thing about this course is not only that it gives you all you need to start fresh, but it does it in an UNDERSTANDABLE and clear way, supported by some nice presentations.
I want to thank the course creator(s) for this lovely and mindful experience.

This was an amazing course. I have taken many MOOC, but after a very long (last I would say was CS50 - from Harvard, by David J. Malan) I found a course so interesting and informative. I have also watched the GIT YouTube videos and other stuff so I can confidently say that if someone is looking to build a solid foundation on GIT VCS then I think there is no better course to take than this.

I'm highly recommending this course for every computer engineer. I had 70% knowledge of git. This course is very useful for beginners as well as intermediate learners. This course completes your knowledge of git. You can do this course using Github as well.
During this course I created repo on Github for practice.
You can definitely check this out ☝ .

Amazing course. I highly recommend every software developer to take this course. Extremely well structured and informative. The best part was the Lab. Wish they had a couple of more weeks of curriculum and covered topics like resetting head and cherrypicking. Too Good already! I used to struggle a lot with Git and I can proudly say my concepts are far more clear after taking this course. A must do!
by Ivan S•
Great set-by-step overview that lets you dive into GIT and gives a structural view on most common git functionalities. Even being familiar with Git, the course helped me to structure the knowledge and learn a few new facts.
Would be great if there was a follow-up course that would also cover submodules, subtrees, LFS, and other practical aspects of Git.
Overall, very good work, Atlassian.

A fantastic course for not only learning how to effectively use Git from the command line but in visualizing Git's DAG structure and its elements. Yes, you will learn what DAG (Directed Acyclic Graph) means in the course!
Our team is new to implementing source control for development on our automation testing platform, so this course will help us to use git effectively.

A great experience from one of the best organizations! Using this course along with the hands-on exercises and practicing on Bitbucket repos made me pretty confident about git. I wasn't actually a beginner in git, and I thought this would be like a refresher course. But this course covers a lot of material in-depth that makes git even more powerful to use daily.

This is a great course if you want to get started with Git. The course instructors have done wonderfully well to streamline the course content. The practice labs, visual aids and tutorials illustrate the concepts in a clear manner. Experience with version control systems is a must have sill these days and if you want to get started, this is the course for you.
by Adarsh P•
the best tutorial with all the necessary hands on. you can also select to go with gui based source tree or pure git command line. also content is actually very concise so one can easily do in 4 days also.. do this course once and you will never face any issue with git, no need to google things anymore and no wondering to different different sites.

I really like this course because of 1. The contents of this course are very rich. 2. The transcript is very useful. 3. The quiz is very tricky to answer. 4. If we follow along with this course then we will by heart all concepts explained in this course. 5. Hand-on exercise is self-explanatory. 6. The basic concept of Git is explained very nicely.
Best introductory course on Git available on the internet. Precise and concise videos. The transcript is useful for reviewing the content again later. Meaningful check points and the hands on lab for all videos help reinforce the topics explained in the videos. The assessment gives confidence as we progress. Thank you very much for this course.

I loved the material, how concepts were taught and defined, it was great! Although, it seems like many people submit their projects and it goes ungraded for more than a month. I wish Coursera or the instructor were able to grade assignments if it goes ungraded for a certain period of time. I would recommend this course to everyone!

Not bad but needs overhaul to make more sense! In terms of the variable names or resource naming of the files and commit messages and so forth - this fileA - commit message add fileA - and the relative obscurity of reading the assignment has to be fixed and given a make over!!! I could barely understand the assignment :) - Cheers

before taking this course i was not at all aware about how git works and what it does. after this course i am well versed with git and i functionality and how efficiently i can use git for development and project works. thank you so much for creating this course and thank you so much coursera for providing this platform to learn.

Amazing course 🤩 I was frightened whenever I heard the word git and github! but after this course, Wholaa! I am now playing with git and GitHub daily 😂😂... definitely improved my knowledge and skills and this will also help me in my future project work! Thank you Atlassian and Coursera for this absolute venerate course 😇
by Mehedi F•
Best course I ever done till now. Here you will get a clear concept of what you are learning, why you are learning along with how you are learning. Moreover I liked about these course is, It has separate section for people who like command line or GUI interface. Highly recommended if you want to clear your concept of Git.
by Paul P•
Really good course on Git. I have had a lot of experience in old-school centralized version control systems, and have had a hard time wrapping my head around git. However, this course went step-by-step through through everything I needed to understand the entirely new paradigm of distributed version control. Thanks!
by Nick N•
This is certainly a complete course. I feel very informed at the end of the course, and I found the final project to be a very real approximation of the work that we do at my work. I took this course as a refresher as well to make sure my skills were on target, and I feel very good about how much I have relearned.
I knew nothing about Git and Github until I enrolled in this course. A lot of people had been asking me to host my projects on Github and I created the account but the work environment was just too complex to understand. This course has really helped me to understand Git and work with the hub. Blessings.

Content is very well organized. Since it includes high level explanation of the git internal solution from the beginning, you get the foundations to build solid knowledge on this tool. This is very well complemented with the labs, and test where the student is able to clarify the concepts and ideas.
