Git & GitHub Boot Camp Course Details:

In just a few years, Git has become the de-facto standard source control system in the software development industry. In a world where people no longer need to be physically in the same room to get things done, a powerful distributed source control system makes sense.

But a source control system alone isn’t enough for teams and organizations to work together. GitHub has made it ever easier for developers to collaborate using Git. Both newcomers and seasoned software developers have flocked to GitHub for their projects, powered by a vibrant open source community. But GitHub is not only there for open source projects. More and more companies are moving towards GitHub because of its easy use and popularity among developers.
