- This is an excellent and neccessary course for developers. It's possible to find articles on the web explaining how to use Git and Github, but it's hard to find any that goes as deep as this Git-Github course. These tools can feel overwhelming to beginners but the process to learn about them on Codecademy was easy and confidence-building.EricsonVerified Learner
