Coming Soon: A Tour of Git and GitHub for Network Engineers

An Introduction to Version Control with Git and GitHub

Be the First to Know When the Course is Live!

Git is quickly becoming the de facto standard for version control. Microsoft, whom has its own workflow with Team Foundation Server and Visual Studio, announced their Git support a few years ago. It was also announced earlier this year that Python code will be moving to GitHub even when Mercurial (one of the popular version control system) was written in Python. It was suggested in RIPE71 that Git can be used as version control system for router/switch configuration as well.

Whether it is an open source project public repository, a private enterprise repository on GitHub, GitLab or any other Git implementation, it seems that if our code wants to move out of the kids table, we need to use this tool along with the rest of the team.

So how hard is it? Pretty simple, to tell the truth. But it is one of those things that it is different than the workflow we are used to. In this course, I will show you the simple workflow of Git to take your code from sitting on your laptop to a GitHub repository that can be used by anybody who has Internet access.
