How to use Github



About GitHub

GitHub is a git repository hosting service founded in 2008 which allows users to work together to create source code repositories and indexes. It is the largest host of source code in the world with over 24 million users and 67 million different repositories. GitHub has been used for many video games, applications, and browser extensions. It is important for open source projects on Scratch because they all utilize GitHub. Scratch 3.0 and the Standalone web client for Scratch are also being developed on GitHub. You can see all of Scratch's GitHub projects in this post by Scratch Team member mewtaylor.

How to Create an Account

GitHub requires that you make a username, give a valid email address and create a password associated with your username. Below is an image of the GitHub Login Page. You will also need to set an email address which you will use to commit (publish) pieces of program code from your computer. GitHub recommends that you verify your account with an email address as well.

Basic User Features
- Repository Issues
- Repository Pull Requests
- Branch Management
- User Profiles
- Organizations

Programming/Adding Repositories

To create your first repository, navigate your way to the top left of the GitHub menu bar and click "+“. Now click ”New Repository" and fill in the details on that page. Please note you have to have a confirmed email address to create a new repository. Now, you can download Git and clone your repository. Now you can start to code! GitHub will support any language you can think of, so write a simple program, start tracking your repository and then push your changes!

Conclusion

Learning GitHub isn't that hard once you know your way around the website and it is an amazing program that supports open-source code. If you are truly interested in being involved in this community, then you will probably need to learn much more than we could summarize in this article. Therefore, we recommend that you look to the Github Help page for support in your future ventures. If you are a total beginner, then please look at these Github guides.

Nice introduction!

I think you have a typo in this sentence “ so write and simple program” - maybe it's “write a simple”?

Perhaps add some links to a few good beginning tutorials that may be out there, for people that want to learn more without getting swamped?

Fixed. We'll find those and add some tutorials later.
