Technical writes are now often asked to write their documentation using the version control systems Git and GitHub. This is part of a philosophy called “Docs Like Code”, where documentation is handled with the same processes and using the same tools as code. Although Git is very powerful version control system, it is extremely non-intuitive, and it can be very confusing to use. There are many ways to host files using Git, but GitHub is the most popular.
This workshop will explain some of the basic concepts that Git uses and lead you through some hands-on exercises to get started using both Git and GitHub.
To do the exercises you will need:
- A Windows or Mac laptop. (An iOS or Android device will not work.)
- Git software installed on your Windows computer. (Git comes automatically with Mac.)
- A free GitHub account
