Creating a Repository5:04 with Carling Kirk
We create a new GitHub repository right in Visual Studio and create a new project. We make our first commit and learn to navigate in Team Explorer.
Include/Exclude vs Stage/Unstage
After this workshop was recorded, the GitHub Visual Studio extension was updated as part of Update 2 for Visual Studio 2015. The GitHub integration in Visual Studio 2017 also includes these changes.
The sections in the Team Explorer "Changes" panel that were labeled "Excluded Changes" and "Included Changes" are now labeled "Changes" and "Staged Changes" (respectively). Additionally, the context menu items that were labeled "Include" and "Exclude" and now labeled "Stage" and "Unstage". These labels were updated in order to use terminology that would be more familiar to experienced git users.
Also, changes are not staged (or "included") by default as they were before. This approach allows you to select which changes to "stage" for your next commit. Or you can choose to "Commit All", which will commit all of your unstaged changes.
For more information on these updates to the GitHub extension, see this article on the Visual Studio website:
