Why Take This Course

You've learned how to develop projects with the amazing version control tool, Git, and it's now time to get your repository off of your local machine and up on a hosting service like GitHub! Having your project on GitHub provides an additional backup for your project in case anything should happen to your computer. With your project on a public site like GitHub, you're free to share it with other developers. Being able to work together with other developers on a project is vital in today's collaborative development processes.
