Git & GitLab Fundamentals for Engineers Training Overview

The Git & GitLab Fundamentals for Engineers training course teaches attendees how to use Git at a fundamental level and includes plenty of hands-on exercises managing repositories, creating and merging branches, properly backing out of mistakes, and getting comfortable resolving conflicts. This course gives students a solid grasp of how Git works, helping reduce the typical “fear of blowing something up” in a Git project. Students consistently complete the class with a very high level of confidence with Git.

This course leverages GitLab as a platform to host our Git repositories. Students learn how to share changes, synchronize their branches, collaborate through merge requests, review code, and other collaboration best practices on GitLab.
