Learn GitHub by Contributing to Micorosoft Docs

Git has become an essential tool for everyone in IT, but many database professionals lag behind and haven't yet learned Git. In this demo-packed session, I'll show you how to learn Git by using GitHub to contribute to Microsoft Documentation. We'll start with an overview of Git and GitHub, then walk through an example of forking a repo, cloning it, creating a branch, committing and pushing a change, and creating a Pull Request.
