Creating a Github Account1:11 with Treasure Porth
Use a professional email and secure password to create a Github account.
There's a new version of Github Desktop currently in beta. You'll need to download and install the non-beta version to follow along with this workshop. To download the previous release, go to https://desktop.github.com/ and scroll to the bottom of the page where it says "Not Ready for Desktop Beta?" and choose Mac or PC.
If you don't already have a GitHub account,
it's pretty straightforward to set up.
Just go to Github.com and
don't worry if your page looks a little bit different than what you see here.
As you know websites change over time, but
the basic registration process should be the same.
In the form here, first type of username.
You'll probably end up showing your work to co-workers or
employers, so be sure to pick a name that's somewhat professional.
Enter your email and a secure password.
Then click sign up for GitHub.
GitHub offers different levels of accounts.
If you're working on projects that you don't want to share with the whole world,
you can pay for private projects.
But it's free to set up a basic account where your projects are public.
We'll leave it at the default setting unlimited public repositories, and
A project on github is called a repository, for each project you'll want
to share we'll create a new repository and add your files to it.
As you can see we don't have any repositories just yet, but in the next
couple of videos, we will set up GitHub desktop and learn how to add them.
