How relevant is this course in 2021?

I've seen a lot of obsolete techniques here. Is it still relevant?

Github is incredibly relevant. Learning how to use Github with Git Bash has made version control and updating my own project files super easy. Not to mention if you use Github Pages to host any projects, it makes it all the better to learn.

Hello John! Thanks for the reply. Sorry, I wasn't clear enough when I wrote my question. I meant how relevant the current course is not GitHub. I've gotten emails from GitHub saying that I am using obsolete methods. For example:

Hi @alexandruamuntean,

You recently used a password to access the repository at alexandruamuntean/medals2 with git using git/2.7.4.

Basic authentication using a password to Git is deprecated and will soon no longer work. Visit https://github.blog/2020-12-15-token-authentication-requirements-for-git-operations/ for more information around suggested workarounds and removal dates.

Thanks, The GitHub Team

Not sure about that particular issue.

I use Git Bash to push to my Github repo and it have never mentioned that. And I used the email/password auth to access it.

Hi Alexandru! I joined GitHub a few months back and got that email. I think GitHub is just changing the sign in feature. It didn't have anything to do with this particular course. I'm taking the course April 2021
