Learn version control with git, SourceTree and GitHub from scratch using Unity games as the example. Best practices.

Want to learn Git without falling asleep? You’re in the right place!

Learning version control can be tricky and boring, we’re here to make it easy and fun. Using game development as the example project, we’ll be showing step-by-step how to get into git (get it?).

By the end of the course you’ll have an indispensable tool, that will allow you to…

  • Protect your valuable work using git version control.
  • Explore creative options using Atlassian’s SourceTree & the terminal / command line.
  • Backup efficiently to the Internet, specifically GitHub but GitLab and BitBucket are mentioned.
  • Learn all the common version control workflows that you’ll need day-to-day.
  • Lay the foundations for collaboration with others.

You won’t only be learning the science of version control, but the art too. For example you’ll learn common usage patterns that keep your live simple, and even how to setup your online portfolio to show your work in the best light.

Your instructor Ben Tristem is the founder of GameDev tv, and has taught 100,000s of students to code and use creative software from scratch, so you’re in good hands. No prior experience of version control, git, or coding required.

We’ll be covering Windows, however MacOS and Linux users can also follow along with a little modification.
