To complete this area of the course, you’ll need to have registered for a free GitHub account.
We will discuss GitHub.com more in the future, but in the meantime, I would you like you to know that GitHub is a web service which is used for storing git repositories by developers. Much of that statement is still likely jargon to you, and that’s okay - it will all come in time.
Create a GitHub.com Account
To begin, you need to register with GitHub.com.
Note Please choose a username that you are comfortable with being part of your publicly-visible URL. For grading purposes, this should be a derivative of your name (make it easy on us, please).
Your username will be publicly available and used often for many things throughout this course (ie. homework) and your entire time on GitHub.
Edit Your Profile
After registering, you need to update your profile to include your full name for grading purposes.
