Collaborative GitHub Repository

Learn how to create a Github repository and add collaborators to it.

It’s time to get your hands dirty with some action-oriented instruction. For this chapter’s project, you’re in a dilemma. You and your team have been storing scripts in a OneDrive folder and need a better way to manage code.

Discovering GitHub, you’d like to set up a repo to see how you and your team can collaborate within GitHub.

The helpdesk department created a service account for you so you could sign up to GitHub with an account that everyone can use to access. Maybe there’s a way to add more people to the repositories for collaboration.
