We went through version control first because, being less directly relevant to small tasks like homework, it is a resource you might be less likely to think of and seek out to learn on your own. Now that you are familiar with the concept, and now that you know you have an easy step by step procedure for setting up version control, you can have it in mind as your projects become more complicated and you can start to use it sooner, giving you an advantage by the time you get to your dissertation or to complex work projects.
