Git and GitHub for Beginners - Crash Course
I have just watched the Saturday Social video (11 Sept). Thanks Jess & Ramon for the great introduction to Git/Github, it was very exciting and left me wanting to know more about Github.
I found this great beginners video on YouTube from freeCodeCamp by Gwen Faraday
I hope other ‘students’ find it as helpful as I did.
Great stuff! Github will definitely be your programming portfolio for all to see!
I kind of keep running into problems when i use this one to be honest, Jess and Ramon’s steps always worked for me and the speed was very comfortable to move along with. I will come back to this one when I learn more.
Good luck to everyone else though!
I found it took me about 2 hours to digest the first half hour, stopping frequently, skipping the SSH section, taking notes and following along in visual studio code and github. Going to skip the branch and forking for now to keep things simple because I don’t think we’ll need it for our course projects.
I tried doing the SSH workflow a few times, but found the HTTPS is much simpler, and forums online didn’t seem to think it was a problem. What are other’s thoughts on that?
Overall I thought this video was awesome; I think Gwen did a great thing of breaking down every concept as simply as possible. Thanks @jillyj2598247 for sharing!
Now I’m off to find how to make my repo images work as hosted images in my site. I think for the tribute site I had done a workaround…
Great I’m also interested to know more about git. I’ll see how this beginner goes about.
