About This Class

Version control is something every web developer or programmer should know.

This course gives you a quickstart into using the popular Bitbucket and SourceTree software. If you are new to Git, Bitbucket, SourceTree or version control then this is the course for you.

Version control is the system which records the changes you make to your projects, files, folders etc. This means if we mess up, or are unable to locate a bug, problem etc, we can revert back to an earlier version before our changes. By the end of this course you will be comfortable with:

  • How to set up and install Bitbucket & SourceTree
  • Creating and cloning repositories
  • Committing & pushing changes
  • Pull requests
  • Creating branches
  • Merging branches
  • Forking repositories and team collaboration

Web Developer & Online Teacher

Hello, My name is Chris and I am a web developer and online teacher. I am passionate about what I do and about teaching others. I have started various online and offline businesses.

Whatever your reason for learning to build websites you have made an excellent career choice.

My personal motivation was to become my own boss and have more freedom and flexibility in my life. I also enjoy the technical challenge it provides and the way it constantly evolves. I built my first website back in 1999 and i have watched the web evolve into what it is today.

I try to make my courses enjoyable and try to remember what it was like when I was learning. I also believe the best way to learn is by doing and try to include as many practical examples as possible in my courses.

Thanks for taking an interest and I look forward to you joining me.
