You will learn how to improve your software development process by exploiting some of the features that are unique to distributed version control systems. We will explore branching strategies and adaption to agile development processes.
This class is intensive and hands-on! We have a complete lab setup where you will gain fast paced experiences to take home, ready to apply in your environment. You only need to bring a laptop with Git installed.
