As a newbie in programming, I see a lot of github profiles filled with projects. But my github profile is very scanty. But at the same time, freecodecamp does not have a git or version control course. Just thinking if it is a good idea just continue to learn and not build my github profiles
Hi @abioludipe ,
I would suggest that you learn git first. That way you be able to build your GitHub profile along with learning and then use those projects to create a portfolio. A portfolio of projects will help you land a job easily and even if landing a job is not your goal, version control is something every developer should know. It has a bit of a learning curve but with all the awesome features that git (or any other version control tool) has , you’ll never regret learning it.
FCC does not offer a course on git, but there are many other courses on git available for free. You can use this course from Udacity to learn git.
They do! Here’s a Git and GitHub Crash Course for beginners from freeCodeCamp:
It’s an hour-long video lesson published in May 2020…
Do google git freeCodeCamp - you’ll come across a number of older tutorials, tips and tricks from both the blog and the youtube channel…
No interactive course though (as far as I know) but these tutorials are quite easy to follow along…
GitHub also has their own tutorial courses from beginner to advanced:
