GitHub & Collaboration

About This Course

This course covers the essentials of working with remote repositories. You'll be able to connect to a remote repository, get changes from a remote repository, and send changes to a remote repository. You'll also learn how to work collaboratively. You'll fork another developer's repository, make changes to it, and then send them a pull request. You'll also pick up some Git tips and tricks that make working with collaborators a breeze.
