GitHub is a code hosting platform for version control and collaboration. It lets you and others work together on projects from anywhere. There are platform ready handy guides and reference documentation you can use to start building.
A repository is usually used to organize a single project. Repositories can contain folders and files, images, videos, spreadsheets, and data sets – anything your project needs.
Branching is the way to work on different versions of a repository at one time. By default, your repository has one branch named master which is considered to be the definitive branch. We use branches to experiment and make edits before committing them to master.
Pull Requests are the heart of collaboration on GitHub. When you open a pull request, you’re proposing your changes and requesting that someone review and pull in your contribution and merge them into their branch. Lightweight code review tools are built into every pull request.
You can bring your changes together by merging your read me-edits branch into the master branch.
You can always choose to contribute to Open Source. Whether it’s coding, user interface design, graphic design, writing, or organizing, working with others on a shared project means you’ll have to explain how you do things, as well as ask other people for help.
