Every project that you ever build needs to be under version control. Why? Version control lets you manage the iterations of your build process. You can track where you are, what changed, who made the change, and when it happened. It will let you roll it back to a previous version. And if you are working on a team, Git hosting gives you the means to contribute, manage pull requests, and more. Most of the major Git hosts also let you track issues.
You can choose to push your project to GitHub, GitLab, or BitBucket. I typically use GitHub for all public repositories and GitLab for private ones.
In this episode, you are going to create your GitHub repository. I’ll walk you through the entire process including setting up the
README.md, initializing the repository, making your first commit, and then pushing that commit.
Once upon a time, there was a developer... You! This is going to be a good story...
