GitHub is a popular Web-based repository for software projects (both code and documentation) and a large open source community that makes both collaboration and source control more efficient. In this session, we will learn how to set up a GitHub repository and write documentation in Markdown, plus learn about Git basics such as merges, forks, branches, and commits. We’ll also explore the social aspects of GitHub and other features (like wikis), and discuss how you can collaborate with developers to improve projects. With a live demo we will cover three ways to document projects stored in GitHub and discuss GitHub benefits.
