Description
The first Git and GitHub class specifically for writers!

More and more, writers are being asked to use Git and GitHub for their documents. This is part of a philosophy called "Docs Like Code", where documentation is created using the same tools and processes that code is. The problem is that Git and GitHub were designed specifically for developers, and these classes don't work as well for writers.

This class differs from other Git and GitHub classes in that:

It explains concepts in ways that are meaningful to writers

All example files are documents rather than code

It talks about how files are used to create documentation

This course is for technical writers, project managers, and anyone who writes who needs to use version control tools like Git and GitHub. It covers:

What version control is

What “Docs Like Code” means

How to use Git manage file versions

How to use GitHub for pull requests and forking

How to handle difficult problems

How Git is used for documentation

In addition to videos, this course contains 14 hands-on exercises that lead you step-by-step in using Git and GitHub. All PowerPoint presentations are available as resources.



Who this course is for:
Technical writers, project managers, and other people who write and need to understand how to use Git and GitHub
This course is not designed for developers, but developers who are having trouble understanding Git may find it useful
