  • Course Git Fundamentals : Content

    In the course Git Fundamentals participants learn to use the distributed version control system Git for version control of applications. Git was originally developed by Linus Torvalds for the management of the Linux Kernel but has since grown into a popular and widespread version control system. The course covers both Git from the command line and Git in the GUI SourceTree.

    Git Intro

    The course Git Fundamentals starts with an explanation of how Git works, which is fundamentally different from the way traditional version control systems such as Subversion and CVS work. Git does not use a central repository where you check files in and out. With Git on the other hand, every developer gets access to all previous versions in compressed form.

    Git Commands

    Next the Git Configuration options such as system, user, and repository configuration are discussed. After a treatment of fundamental Git concepts such as working directory and staging area, the different types of repositories such as local repositories, remote repositories and bare repositories are explained. Various basic commands in Git are also covered, such as add, commit, checkout, status, revert and reset. Also attention is paid how to reference commits by hash or by giving them a specific tag with git tag.

    Git Branching

    Part of the course program as well is splitting off branches for testing features with git branch. The meaning of detached HEADS is discussed here. Saving changes for later with git stash is also covered.

    Git Merging

    And also merging these branches again with git merge is discussed. Conflicts may have arisen during the merge of branches and the options for conflict resolution are treated.

    Git Remote

    And also working with remote repositories and the commands used for that such as git remote, git fetch, git pull and git push are treated.


    The course concludes with an overview of the tools available for Git version management. Then attention is also paid to GitHub, also known as Facebook for developers.

    Course Forms

    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.

    Course times

    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.


    At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.


    The intellectual property rights of the published course content, also referred to as an information sheet, belong to SpiralTrain. It is not allowed to publish the course information, the information sheet, in written or digital form without the explicit permission of SpiralTrain. The course content is to be understood as the description of the course content in sentences as well as the division of the course into modules and topics in the modules.
