THIS CLASS HAS A $40 FEEE.
YOU MUST REGISTER ON OUR WEBSITE TO ACCESS THIS CLASS:
Before this session, you must:
Install git on your computer
Create a GitHub account and set up SSH
Install an Integrated Development Environment (IDE such as VSCode)
Before this session, you must be able to navigate directories using the command line (cd, pwd, mkdir, and ls in unix shell)
If you are unfamiliar, make your way through pwd, cd, mkdir, ls from this tutorial:
If you are not familiar with the Command Line, here are a few basic tips to be successful:
Don’t panic! This can be a scary interface for the first time. Take a deep breath and recognize that it’s a new way of interacting with a computer. Over time, you’ll get accustomed to the interfaces and conventions.
Read the errors. When something goes wrong, it can be scary. The truth is that installations can be super hard and cumbersome, because everybody’s machine has a different setup. Versions and compatibility get crazy! Part of your success will depend on you slowly reading through the long errors that get output and figuring out how to understand them. If you get stuck, take a deep breath and read the error out loud. Then try to Google for answers by just pasting in different parts of the error. Chances are lots of other people have had the same problem and someone might already have found the solution!
Feel the power. With your new command line skills, you will have more power over your computer than you ever had before. “With great power, comes great responsibility.”
