GitHub is an excellent workflow tool, but some developers don’t quite understand it. To help get you up and running, GitHub released a training course.

It’s a self-paced program that has two overriding goals: to help you manage your source code and use GitHub as a collaboration tool. There are seven sections total:

•Section 1: Introducing Git and GitHub

•Section 2: Getting Started with Collaboration

•Section 3: The GitHub Workflow: Branching and Committing

•Section 4: The GitHub Workflow: Pull Requests

•Section 5: Setting up Git

•Section 6: Using GitHub Locally

•Section 7: The Workflow End-to-End

•Section 8: Working with Local Files

•Section 9: Fixing Common Issues with Git

•Section 10: Creating Shortcuts

The course is meant for command-line users who are new to Git and GitHub.

To make the course happen, GitHub partnered with Wheelhouse for interactive videos and hands-on tutorials. Because it’s new, GitHub and Wheelhouse are currently offering free access to the course in exchange for feedback.
