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.

Instructor Details

Peter founded SDK Bridge to bring together his love of technology and writing. After 10 years as a software developer, he learned the skill of API writing at Microsoft. Since then, he has worked as an API writer to describe APIs for eCommerce, automobile traffic prediction, electric utilities, mobile phones, and tractors, just to name a few. In addition to API and SDK documentation, he creates video tutorials for software developer audiences. Peter received his BA in Physics from the University of Chicago and his PhD in Applied Physics from Stanford University.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    There appeared to be some careless repetition in the last few minutes of this last installment.
