Git is powerful and flexible, but offers little guidance in meeting team
collaboration and process requirements. Our class explains both the details of
Git semantics, and the constraints and mechanisms needed to enable developer
collaboration at scale and integration with your software development process.
We will cover technical capabilities and features of Git and the best practices
around their use.

Understand how Git represents changes over time and across devices
Manage commits, branches, and remotes to create a clear, curated history of
Branch, merge, pull request, and workflow strategies

Acclimating new developers to source control, Git, and project-specific
Reduce time and cost fighting version control problems

Oasis Digital instructors have extensive experience with both
Angular and numerous surrounding technologies; here are some
of them. The specific instructor(s) assigned to your class will
depend on which class or class topics (we customize!) are
put together, availability, additional consulting needs, etc.
Q: Is this taught "in person"?
A: We offer training both in-person and online via remote conferencing.
Q: How does the remote option work?
A: Much like an in-person class, it is conducted by our expert trainers, in real time.
The trainers can answer questions, assist with trouble students are having, etc.
We strive to offer as much of the in-person experience as possible, online.
Q: Are there open enrollment public classes?
A: We currently only offer an open-enrollment "public" class for our flagship
Angular Boot Camp.
Q: How does the recorded class work?
A: In a recorded class, the biggest obstacle is the lack of live question-and-answer
To deliver a great result, we practice teaching with live groups before
creating the recorded class. In this way, we aim to answer as many of the common
(and less common) questions as possible. We also do as much "live coding" as makes
sense for the topic, in a recorded class.
Q: Can we schedule a private class any time?
A: Our classes are taught by developers who use the subject technologies in their daily work,
so we don't assign "any" available developer/trainer to any particular class,
but only to classes with a strong experience and knowledge match.
Please contact us to arrange a date.
Two ways to learn
1) Training for your team, available now
For corporate groups and other organizations, we offer live in-person instruction.
These teams typically have advanced needs, so we provide customized, hands-on
Before each class, our instructors will listen to your needs in depth and add or
change the class agenda. We can also follow-up a class with consulting
assistance, or combine multiple classes into a longer workshop week.
Contact us about a private class
2) Live-instructor public classes, coming soon
Want to attend as an individual or small group? We are creating public,
open enrollment versions of many of our classes, including this one.
Unlike canned video training, live instructor online classes offer frequent
opportunities for detailed Q&A discussion.
This class isn't quite ready yet, but follow us on social media (bottom of
the page) or keep an eye on our website for announcements. We will show
the schedule of upcoming open enrollment class dates prominently.
