Checkout our class GitHub organization page. There aren't any projects on Github yet but they are coming very soon!

We've got a lot of free stuff for you on Github. If you haven't signed up for Github yet, please take a few minutes to do so now. On Tuesday, I'll go over the creation of a Github account and will spend more time with the class to

1) Setup a project

2) Create a README

3) Create wiki page to describe the business model, the interface, the users

4) Commit/push some files

5) Create issues

I'm going to motivate the students to think of Github as a way to showcase their skills to the world. Arguably, in the tech world, it's becoming more valuable than having a nice resume on LinkedIn. Perhaps recruiters are more interested in seeing the contributions made to an open source project than learning about an amazing GPA or an impressive title at a blue chip company.

Students: for your in class projects, you will have the option to either create private or public projects, although I should suggest you make them public.
