Creating a Public GitHub Project

Learn how to create a public GitHub project.

Using GitHub

Sometimes, we might want to share our Git repository with other people to use our code project on their own, for collaborations, or we may just want to be sure our project has a public copy somewhere else in case something happens to the one on our local machine. There are a handful of ways to do this, and our team may have an internal copy of Git or some other software repository we can use. For this course, we’ll be using the GitHub website as our remote repository for our API project. We’ll need to do some setup work to make it possible to safely manage our remote repository from our desktop or laptop. For more details, see the “Installation Hints” lesson in the “Appendix.”
