About me

I've worked on GitHub projects at companies ranging from Fortune 100 to as small as greenfield startups. Today, I run my own analytics consulting company and work full-time on projects as a solution architect.

I've also taught GitHub to hundreds of thousands of people through my YouTube channel.

Like many others, I'm originally a self taught developer and had to learn a lot about GitHub on the fly.

This Guide is a consolidated list of some of the most important topics I wish I understood better when first getting started.

I hope it helps you on your journey learning about this massively popular and important tool.
