“As an IT Professional myself, I can say Tim is probably one of the best instructors here on Udemy. He makes a huge effort in creating his courses at highest standards, and this particular one is no exception. The content is very good and excellent structured. The new features are introduced in a logical order giving the student the option to create a fundament in a very short time. Both instructors are very helpful in the QA section of the course, answering all the questions very quickly and listening to the student’s suggestions.” – Adrian Banu
“Ive used many version control systems in the course of my career. I’ve also explored Git and used it for a few personal projects, but had many unanswered questions and not enough time to investigate them. When I saw that Tim Buchalka was offering a course on the topic I jumped on it and have not been not disappointed. The course offers a thorough introduction to key concepts which are a distillation equivalent to a lot of reading and study, and provides pointers to more in-depth sources of information. Even if someone already uses Git, they’ll learn a few things, and if they haven’t yet used it, there probably isn’t a better introduction to the topic. Also, Tim has a great track record for sticking with his courses and not letting them go stale, updating them and informing his users when he does.” – Stuart Felker
“Brilliant course. Learned a lot and I am now using git and github in my software development. The videos and explanations are very clear and cover everything you need to get started using git and github.” – David Crombie
