Creating a Github Repository

Links:

If you don't have a github account that's where you'll need to start. You can get started setting up your account by going to github.com and log-in using an email. Github has special benefits for students so if possible, use your school email. Once you've set up an account, in the terminal type the following commands:

git config --global user.name "John Doe"
git config --global user.email johndoe@example.com

git add .
