A key to maintaining a project under version control is to store it as a remote repository on a server that is backed up over time. Keeping a project on a remote repository not only provides a back-up of the project; it also allows others to collaborate on the project. In the case of Git there are several remote repository options out there. Github and BitBucket are two of the more popular choices, each with a free option and a subscription option. In this course, you will create a remote Git repository using an existing Git project containing directories and files. You will use Git commands such as push, pull, fetch, branch, and merge to make changes to your local Git repository and add them to the remote repository. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
