Git and GitHub for Writers
$59.99 Track price
The first Git and GitHub class specifically for writers!
More and more, writers are being asked to use Git and GitHub for their documents. This is part of a philosophy called Docs Like Code , where documentation is created using the same tools and processes that code is. The problem is that Git and GitHub were designed specifically for developers, and these classes don’t work as well for writers.
This class differs from other Git and GitHub classes in that:
It explains concepts in ways that are meaningful to writers
All example files are documents rather than code
It talks about how files are used to create documentation
This course is for technical writers, project managers, and anyone who writes who needs to use version control tools like Git and GitHub. It covers:
What version control is
What Docs Like Code means
How to use Git manage file versions
How to use GitHub for pull requests and forking
How to handle difficult problems
How Git is used for documentation
In addition to videos, this course contains 14 hands–on exercises that lead you step–by–step in using Git and GitHub. All PowerPoint presentations are available as resources.

There is a small section that is duplicated. Otherwise, all ok

So far, so good.
Dave Bagwell –
Nice simple introduction with video examples and exercises to solidify learning.

It is a great exposure to Git, which we writers often don’t get. The lessons are helping me learn the features of the tool in a very simple and easy manner!
Lesley Morgan –
Very thorough and methodical! I’ve learned more in this course than all the courses I’ve tried in the last few years, which tend to be too geek speaky for me.
It’s what I need for my next jobs!
Jeff Woodson –
Good intro that explains the basics of git. Well laid out course and content was presented in an interesting way that didn’t seem boring.
Christopher Griffen –
It’s filling in my knowledge gaps, so that’s good.
Sara King –
Good match. But the exercise from step 21 (Exercise 8: Tags) is incorrect. It refers to a folder called ‘example’ (we are working in ‘exercise’) and shows a different set of steps/information than the ones we need to do. Need to fix it!
John Cobb –
This course was great at providing solid basic training on using Git and GitHub. Really enjoyed it.
Brenda Gilreath –
It expands on what I learned on the job.

I appreciate starting with basics and some background. The pace is really good.
Guy Haas –
There appeared to be some careless repetition in the last few minutes of this last installment.
