Git for Developers

Git for Developers

Bascom Bridge’s Git for Developers training course teaches mobile, desktop and web developers to use Git, the leading software version control system. Git is distributed, free, and appropriate for development projects in almost any language.



All students will:

  • Understand Git and the fundamentals of version control software
  • Install and configure Git
  • Use Git for version control throughout the application development lifecycle
  • Interface with GitHub
  • Use other Git tools


No prior experience with Git is presumed.  Prior experience with other version control systems is helpful but not required.


All attendees receive comprehensive course materials.


  • Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, or Solaris, ideally on a machine with dual core or faster processor and 4GB RAM or higher
  • Git 2.x or later (earlier versions taught upon request)
  • Internet access for all attendees and the instructor
  • Related software that Accelebrate would provide
  • For classes delivered online, all participants need either dual monitors or a separate device logged into the online session so that they can do their work on one screen and watch the instructor on the other. A separate computer connected to a projector or large screen TV would be another way for students to see the instructor’s screen simultaneously with working on their own.
