pushing to github?

I have done all of this tutorial from the provided workspaces and thus far everything has gone just fine but when working on my personal projects do I upload work onto github via chrome devtools or from my preferred text editor? I am not sure about that part! Thank you in advance for any and all help!

I see you're doing the introduction to Git course. It's a great course and I'm very glad I took it early when I started learning because so many places ask you to learn version control. You want to install git on your computer. Use the teacher's note's from this video https://teamtreehouse.com/library/introduction-69 to install it. So when you are working on your project, you have to initialize a git repo on your local files, and commit them, and then push to your Github account. You will learn about how to do all of that in this Git course :)
