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.
