Why Learn Git?
Ever have an “I lost all my work and I have a deadline the next day” moment? Git is the most popular version control tool—something that developers use to save all relevant versions of their work to avoid moments like those. Git also makes it easy for developers to collaborate and share work with others!
Git, simply put, is a tool to save versions of your code. This course will teach you a basic workflow and Git’s core features, different ways to undo changes or save multiple versions of a project, and how to collaborate with other developers.

It's time to build fluency in Git fundamentals. In this next Pro Project, we're going to practice resetting HEAD in Git so you can hone your skills and feel confident taking them to the real world. Why? Whenever you have problems with your code and you want to start over, resetting to the HEAD is a great option. What's next? A poet, backtracking, more Git. You got this!
