Getting started using Git for version control can be confusing, but it doesn’t have to be. The GitKraken Git GUI, GitKraken Boards and GitKraken Timelines actually help make the process easier, which is why we’ve partnered with GitHub to provide the GitKraken Pro Suite for free for students through the GitHub Student Developer Pack! We've also created lots of resources to help students learn Git.
