About This Class


Share, contribute work, and collaborate with others using GitHub and the power of Git! In this class you will get step-by-step instructions on how to install Git on your computer, set up your own GitHub account and create your first project.

This class was created by a designer for anyone that learns more efficiently by seeing as opposed to just reading. Git and GitHub aren’t just for people that write code. They are tools for collaboration! Even if you’ve never written a line of code in your life, you can use these tools to share ideas, images, and just about any kind of file that you create.

This is a great intro class for git and github, I had basically no understanding of the process before watching and now feel confident that I understand the process in addition to having some basic vocabulary to put into practice.
very well done and easy to follow
Super great primer to Git + Github. Well organized, short but clear explanations, great videos--killer job Marc.

Artsy people can code!

I'm what you would call "a maker" and I love to share what I've learned. Most of that falls at the intersection of tech and art. I'm a self-taught web designer and front-end developer and overall a hands-on visual learner. My hope is that I can make it easier for other visual learners and "artsy" types to learn to code by sharing some of the concepts that I had to learn through much trial and error.
