Workshops

Here’s a curated list of the workshops related to Git I am ready to host. The workshops contain theory, exercises, discussions, literature and are studded with jokes, development principles and good practices. Be sure to ask about topics which may not be on the list yet!


Essentials

These are the topics, I recommend every developer becoming an expert in. It is my strong believe, that you cannot be efficient using Git if you do not learn the skills taught in these modules.
