Yes, You Can Git

(A Gentle and Practical Introduction to Git and GitHub)

One of the most rewarding workshops which I have taught is an introduction to Git and GitHub to beginners during the Write Speak Code Conference 2016. It was great to see people go on to use their new git skills in their jobs and in open source.

This workshop will be based on the following slidedeck, Yes, You Can Git.
