GitHub for Non-Programmers


These workshop materials were developed as part of the 25x52 initiative. GitHub is popular among developers for managing source code...but it’s not just for programmers. In this workshop, participants will take advantage of GitHub's excellent distributed version-control capabilities and collaboration features to host and share their own open-source, non-technical projects. No programming skills required. Requires a Mac running OS X Yosemite (10.10+).

What we'll cover:

  • Learn basic Git commands for navigating and managing files using terminal
  • Use GitHub to create a webpage and host open-source projects for free
  • Understand how Git’s version-control works
  • Learn how to contribute to other projects through pull requests

Examples of non-technical GitHub projects:
