Following its redesigned profile pages, GitHub, the popular collaborative coding hub for developers, has just launched a brand new training site to help anyone get started with its service and learn Git.
GitHub already hosts some 2.1 million users and nearly 3.8 million code repositories (it’s even replacing resumes for some programmers), but the site is still dedicated to growth. Today’s announcement is part of a larger goal to make the service more accessible, and follows the hiring of additional support staff and the release of new training materials.
As Tim Berglund explains on the GitHub blog, the new training site will be the best way to stay up to date on everything the startup’s training team is up to. This includes:
- A listing of current on-line and in-person events
- Registration for online classes
- Links to office hours
- Links to free classes
- GitHub training screencasts
- External Git educational resources
- Other speaking and teaching events the training team does all over Planet Earth
In addition to the new site, GitHub has decided to open source its own training materials (more on that here) and has hired developer Zachary Kaplan and designer Coby Chappelle.
