Github?

Will Treehouse have a Github training deep dive? In the meant-time anyone know of a good Github Training resource?

This is the exact question I had! Thank you for posting this! Glad to see it is coming up on the roadmap!

We are working on a Git course right now which will be released in late September. Check out our roadmap for details.

Thanks so much I forgot about the roadmap.

I personally learned the basics of github on the Ruby tutorials on Treehouse. http://teamtreehouse.com/library/programming/build-a-simple-ruby-on-rails-application

I'm working through this course now. I can say personally that after following the first few videos, they cover creating a GitHub account, getting Git set-up, creating a Repository and other basics such as getting the latest changes from the repo and pushing out new changes to your repo also, even adding additional users to the repo to collaborate on work together.

With what's covered in these videos, you can get the basics of GitHub nailed. A few google searches from there and you'll be commiting, pulling and merging like its second nature. Good luck!

Maybe also try this link http://learn.github.com/

They also have http://try.github.io/ which is a quick crash course and how I got started.

Thanks for the reply I will check this out as well.

I know this is a late response, but I came here looking for Treehouse's Git course too. Code-School's Git course is free right now:

EDIT: Treehouse's search function didn't return this deep dive for me, only the individual videos in the Ruby, etc. adventures. Weird.
