As a absolute beginner with Git I was searching for a good introduction for this software and I found 'Try Git' and I liked very much, so I decided to follow with Git Real 1 and it works for me. Anyway, I personally would add a final project to work with a real git server following a script where the student have to show snapshots of results. Well, in a few day I shall begin Git Real 2.

I think code school hits a nice balance on how much info was packed into this lesson. The only criticism I would give is that it feels the later lessons are a bit rushed. The video seems to cover more than what is tested on. I do feel I understand GIT much more than when I first started the lesson.

Well explained, diagrams definitely help to visualise the conflict situation. All examples provide useful practice for managing your git repo and get a gentle start on collaborative work. Would love to see more on git flow in the future. Alex

The introduction to Git was perfectly executed. There is nothing I would change on the content. As this is my first introduction to codeschool, and was lured in by the Git videos, I am expecting the rest of the tutorials to follow the same basic structure. The only change I would make is removing the opening title sequences from the remainder of the videos past the first introduction video for each lesson. I found myself fast forwarding 25 seconds each time to skip the same sequence. The production value on the opening sequences are amazing though, and would absolutely encourage them to stay in their entirety on the first video. Fantastic job guys!

Too much time spent of git mechanics and not enough on the "why". Why would you want to rebase instead of merge conflicts.

Git can be a bit confusing when you first use it and though I eventually mastered the basics through use, it was nice to have everything explained in a clear manner to understand what the different features are for and how they fit together.

Git Real provides me with some daily git management work. Through the course, you can learn basic command which is needed just like daily work scenario.

I'm done a bit of git stuff on my own, but only for personal projects that have no collaborators. All my collaborative work has been with SVN, so git on the collaborative level is a bit new. After this course, I definitely feel more comfortable with things, and I found I could get through the challenges, but I'm still a little foggy on some concepts. The first time you brought up origin/master we master, it was a bit confusing, because the visual was that used for branching, and yet it seems that it's both a remote vs local difference as well as a branch. Honestly I still am a bit confused by that as you can probably tell by this description. I think it would be awesome if there was a diagram that was visible throughout, like a map, that showed all remotes and local 'boxes', and in each there was all the branches and master. Then as you talked, you could highlight the part that you're talking about. In other words if you're talking a...

Then as you talked, you could highlight the part that you're talking about. In other words if you're talking about Jane's branch, i coudl still have a visual representation of Gregg's branches and where they live. The conflicts that arise from Jane deleting the remote branch would have been much clearer if I could have seen visually something evaporating that was connected to something Gregg had. At least for me, the stuff around alias and config file was pretty easy and could have been skipped, and replaced with more about rebasing, and more time spent visualizing some of the thorny conflicts. I'm sure that the stuff you showed was pretty simple conflicts in the scheme of things, but the visual could have really helped me have things sync in. I'll end up probably going through this again and making the drawings myself to help it really stick. Enjoying code school so far, just getting started with it though!

As a daily Git user I would recommend this course to all current Git users! It may be mostly review, but most likely you'll find at least a few new things or shortcuts to help you along the way.

I bought a 25 euro book about GIt several weeks ago and read it. But a real insight I got with this interactive 'you have to do something' tutorial. I think that someone should do some stuff with GIt i.e. tryGit Tutorial before checking this one, because it is a bit fast for beginners. Great work though, please continue.

I have been using svn to manage my code. I was keen to learn git and this course was a good quick overview. My only complaints are with the slide/terminal interface. Every time I toggle between the two it forgets where I am up to in the slides (and my zoom level) and resets to the terminal to the top line.

I've been meaning to learn git for a long time, go thrown into a new job and needed to catch up. With little time to learn git and start using it right away, this was a great (and quick) alternative than straight reading and looking at examples! -- There is no comment section for requesting a course anymore, but I'd be interested in the Advanced GIT course :)

For a few months now I have been using a GUI to make git do my bidding. This course was a great way to remind me most of the command line interface's usage.

First and most important: I found a bug in the challenges: When I went to the first challenge of level 6 ( http://gitreal.codeschool.com/levels/6/challenges/1 ) I found my screen was almost totally white. It seems some div is covering the screen. I worked around the problem by opening dev tools in chrome, and that seemed to hide that div. Also I found that the course was going faster than usual: the backbone courses were more easily comprehensible to me. Lastly, I like the guy with the glasses! Keep up those small funny ways of explaining topics, like schrödingers cat and such PS: it appears that I can't write schrödinger correctly in this form

This is my first course, well other than the try Git course. A lot of information packed in a course. I really feel like there should be a course that is at a level in the middle of Try Git and Git Real. If not that maybe a little more in depth Try Git course. But I stumbled my way through an appreciate all the helpful links on the page at the end and the video talking about each one. That was a nice surprise to see. Thanks so much

Git Real is great for really using git the way it designed; collaboration in mind. One that stood out was, towards the end of the last lesson, the audio did not sync with the slides. There mention of some Windows vs Unix formats, and I think that would have been very helpful, especially since the slides were showing how set email settings. Overall, really good.

...and I loved it! Nice job, guys. I finally feel like I fully understand git. My only critical feedback is that the Tron theme got in the way of the information. I hope the other courses I want to take aren't as burdened by a distracting interface. My brain got smarter at the expense of my eyeballs. This may be a separate issue, but the scrolling on the slides was really janky and sometimes did not remember what slide I was on when I toggled back and forth, which combined to make them an almost unusable resource. Believe it or not, I used gitref to help with syntax when I was taking the challenges because navigating back to the slides was so broken. Apart from the interface, the structure and content of the slides, videos, and challenges was terrific. Definitely the best code-learning platform out there as far as quality of teaching goes. p.s.

I really liked the course. But the only problem I had was that I felt it was too fast. It felt like a lot of info in a short time. The instructors explained too fast. Some text and commands passed too quickly. Of course I can admit that maybe I'm being peaky. We can always watch the video over and over and check the slides. :) Thanks for the course. P.S - A possible improvement for a more advanced course is to talk more about how to have different repos, like for development and production.
