What GitHub is?

GitHub is a web-based platform for software developers to store, track, and collaborate on projects. It uses Git, an open-source version control software, to allow multiple people to make changes to web pages at the same time. GitHub makes it easy for developers to share code files and collaborate with others on open-source projects.

GitHub was started in 2008 and was acquired by Microsoft in 2018 for $7.5 billion. GitHub is a cloud-based service that offers access control, bug tracking, software feature requests, task management, and continuous integration.

GitHub’s interface is user-friendly enough that even novice coders can use Git. You only need to know a few Git commands to learn how to push code to GitHub.

There are two ways to create a project on GitHub:

  1. Create a repository and then create a project from it.

    1. Go to your GitHub profile.
    2. Click the “Repositories” tab.
    3. Click the “New repository” button.
    4. Give your repository a name and description.
    5. Select the visibility of your repository (public or private).
    6. Click the “Create repository” button.
    7. Once your repository is created, go to the “Projects” tab.
    8. Click the “New project” button.
    9. Select the repository you want to create a project from.
    10. Give your project a name and description.
    11. Click the “Create project” button.
  2. Create a project directly.

    1. Go to your GitHub profile.
    2. Click the “Projects” tab.
    3. Click the “New project” button.
    4. Give your project a name and description.
    5. Optionally, select a template for your project.
    6. Click the “Create project” button.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind when creating a project on GitHub:

  • The name of your project should be descriptive and unique.
  • The description of your project should provide more information about what the project is about and what it will accomplish.
  • The visibility of your project determines who can see and access it. Public projects can be seen by anyone, while private projects can only be seen by you and the people you give access to.
  • You can create a project from any repository that you own.
  • You can also create a project from a template. Templates are pre-made projects that you can use as a starting point for your own project.

I hope this helps!
