This section concentrates on the GitHub website and how to use it.
My first impression with GitHub was that it was quite difficult to understand and navigate. This was partly because it is, but mostly (at the time) because I didn’t understand the concepts behind Git. Hopefully I’ve addressed the Git version control mechanisms and concepts in the previous sections so that just leaves GitHub itself. That’s what this section if for.
In this section I cover the basics of GitHub:
Examining files and folders
Editing files directly on GitHub
Creating new files
Renaming and deleting files
Examining commits and the commit list
Examining and recovering earlier commit points
Comparing changes and pull requests
Merging and Handling conflicts
Tags and releases
