An important part of the learning process is actually learning how to 0:00 ask a good question. 0:03 Your questions are probably gonna be technical in nature, so 0:05 you've got to be very specific. 0:07 So specific, in fact, you've got to actually include the code that you're 0:09 having problems with in your forum post. 0:12 I'll share with you three ways you can do this in our forums. 0:15 Number one. 0:19 If you have an issue with a tiny snippet of code, use Markdown. 0:20 To use Markdown, 0:23 place your code wrapped in three brackets on the line before and after. 0:24 After the first set of back ticks you can specify the language you're 0:31 using to help us with syntax highlighting. 0:34 Number two. 0:38 If it's more than a snippet and it's a front end project, 0:39 use something like Codepen. 0:42 If you're using a backend language like Ruby or 0:46 PHP, the easiest way to show your code will be with GitHub. 0:48 If you don't know what Git is, check out our Git course. 0:53 It's an essential part of a developer or a designer's toolset. 0:56 But be sure not to share any sensitive data base or 1:00 cloud storage information such as passwords. 1:02 Good luck, and pretty soon a student or 1:06 a teacher from Treehouse will answer your question. 1:09
