About this workshop

The first day of this five-part course is great for students interested in taking an immersive at GA. You can take any of the one-day workshops this week, or all five.

We will install git and Atom on your Mac and then use the terminal to practice navigating the file system. We will also cover how to use git and GitHub in your development work, how to write basic HTML and markdown, and how to read documentation.

Takeaways

  • Summarize a basic filesystem structure, including absolute and relative paths
  • Use the most common commands to navigate and modify files / directories via the Terminal window
  • Differentiate between navigating the file system using the CLI vs. the GUI
  • Explain basic git commands like init, add, commit, push, pull and clone
  • Distinguish between local and remote repositories
  • Create, copy, and delete repositories locally, or on Github
  • Create a basic HTML document
