GitHub is more than just a repository, as this 16-video course demonstrates. The last of a 3-course series, this course examines the project management features available on GitHub. Participants will continue to use GitHub's suite of tools to manage their source codes in the project you began in the previous course. Such features will help you to keep track of your application source code. When developing code, it is common to work in a team environment, and often there are multiple collaborators on a single code branch; GitHub's many tools and features will assist in managing these multiple branches. First, learn how to add a collaborator to your GitHub project. You will then learn to work with collaborators' pull requests and how to merge branches on GitHub. When branches are merged, conflicts can arise; here you will examine and learn how to manage such conflicts. Finally, GitHub's many tools and features also provide several approaches to gather statistics; Tags to manage releases, as well as issues; milestones; and project boards to track progress.
