When you have a group of people working together and you need multiple resources, your best course of action is to create a GitHub Organization.
[SOUND] Up until now, we've been using Github as ourself, as a user. 0:00 However, sometimes you might wanna use Github with other people that you work 0:08 closely with. 0:12 This could be your employer, an open source organization, or 0:13 a personal project you're working on. 0:16 When you have a group of people working together and 0:18 you need multiple repositories you probably need a GitHub Organization. 0:20 A GitHub organization lets you manage and organize group-owned repositories. 0:25 Here is an example. 0:29 Say you already have a GitHub account. 0:31 We'll use mine for example. 0:33 You've been working on personal projects and contributing to Open Source. 0:35 Then you get a job at Acme, Inc. 0:39 Acme, Inc is using a GitHub Organization to manage their repositories. 0:42 Acme, Inc can invite you to collaborate on the repositories it'd 0:46 like you to have access to without giving you access to everything. 0:50 You can be a member of a bunch of different organizations, but 0:54 you'll only ever have your one user account. 0:57 >> Let's create an organization of our own to learn how to use GitHub as 1:01 part of a group. 1:04 At the top of your screen, click the Plus icon and then choose New Organization. 1:05 Now let's give our organization a name. 1:11 I'll call mine KDaygel inc., but you can call yours whatever you'd like. 1:13 Most organizations just use their company name. 1:18 Your organization will get a profile just like your user does. 1:21 Your organization profile can be a great way for 1:25 a company to share its open source projects in a single place. 1:27 We'll be using your organization through the rest of this stage. 1:30 So make sure to pick a name that's memorable. 1:33 Fill out your name and then enter your email address. 1:36 And then click Create organization at the bottom of the page. 1:42 We'll only be using public repositories, so 1:47 creating this organization won't cost you anything. 1:49 Normally though, when working in an organization, you'd be using private 1:52 repositories to keep your code private, and there is cost associated with that. 1:55 Let's skip the step to invite people in your new organization, 2:00 because we'll be doing that later. 2:03 Great, you're the owner of a brand new GitHub organization. 2:06 In the next video, we'll start using one organization specific feature, teams. 2:10
