The course GIT for Developers is intended for developers who want to use Git and GitHub for distributed version control.
To participate in the course GIT for Developers knowledge of and experience with software development in a modern language such as Java, C++, C# or PHP is required.
The theory is discussed on the basis of the presentation slides and is interspersed with exercises. Demo projects are used to clarify the concepts. The course material is in English.
After successful completion of the course, the participants receive an official certificate GIT for Developers.
In the course Git for developers participants learn to understand the concepts of distributed version control and to begin with the GitHub suite of tools effectively.
Attention is paid to repositories that can be located both local and remote, how versions can be committed and possibly undone. It is further treated what Git branching is and which strategies you can use for branching and merging.
The control of Git from the command line is also discussed. Furthermore attention is paid to typical GitHub workflows, to undoing errors and history manipulation in a distributed environment.
Finally some of the available tools are treated like Revision Selection, Interactive Staging, Rewriting History and Debugging with bisect.

All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.
We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.
The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.
We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.
Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.
The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.
The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.
