Git and Version Control, Part 1

If you want to be a web developer in 2015, you have to understand Git.

Git is a free and open source version control system that can handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency. Git can really help your development, but it can be intimidating to set up and use.

In this week's new videos, Brian helps you get started with installing Git and making your first "commits".
