Easy Way To Learn How To Use Git and GitHub
If you are a web designer or developer, chances are that you must learn how to use Git and GitHub. In case you are not familiar with the command line, then this task will look like rocket science, but it's not, believe to command line hater (me).
I thought that command line belongs to the past and only there. We have a graphical interface and nobody will ever use command line, people are never going back. False conclusion, it seems that feature is full of code and command lines from my perspective. So you get same conclusion and you decide to learn how to launch rockets. Where to start? You have tried several times and all you get are error messages and frustration. You keep thinking about the task and you have seen my title which promises easy way. It is easy because all you need is someone who can explain you what is all about and how to get started, right? Since we (humans) have built in preferences to learn from others by listening and watching, chances are that you are looking for video instructions with real World projects.
