I have been threatening to do this for some time, as a number of
#RebootingWebOfTrust participants are not coders, so have been collecting

(windows only) https://www.sitepoint.com/version-control-git/

(incomplete, but some good introduction materials)

(good, but focused on publishing github pages)
http://dannguyen.github.io/github-for-portfolios/

(15 minute command line utility) https://try.github.io/levels/1/challenges/1
