Developing a Video Course on Git

I’m currently in the planning phase of creating a video course on git for beginners, so I really need your help. What would you put into it? If you know git already, what were the toughest topics or what would you have wanted to know about the concept before touching it? I’ve been blogging a lot about git in the past, specifically a lot about GitLab and why it’s a great git server with a neat web interface, so it’s not like I’m out of ideas.

What would you want in a git video course?

I just want to know what YOU would like to learn or what you wish you had known when starting to use git. It doesn’t matter if you’re a developer or designer for this, if you have used git or played with the idea of learning it, I’d love to hear your opinion and input! Please leave a comment!
