Introduction to Git and GitHub begins with setting up and configuring Git on your computer along with creating a repository and using it for exercises throughout the book. With the help of multiple activities, you'll learn concepts that show various stages of a file—from when it is untracked to when it is set for tracking under version control. As you make your way through the chapters, you'll learn to navigate through the history of a repository, fetch and deliver code to GitHub, and undo code changes.

The first half of the book ends with you learning to work with branches, storing and retrieving changes temporarily, and merging the desired changes into a repository.

In the second half, you'll learn about forking as part of a collaborative workflow. You'll also address modularity and duplication through submodules, tracing and rectifying faulty changes, and maintaining repositories.

By the end of this book, you will have learned how to effectively deploy applications using GitHub.
