Nice training!. It provides the fundamental concepts for developing with git. Maybe I missed some mentions (or even labs), which popular systems using git, such as github or even gitlab, where simple collaboration workflows may be illustrated easily.

Missed maybe some practical examples to follow-up during the course. With a dummy repository just for the course so students can play with it.
