Collaborating in GitHub

GitHub is a web-based repository for software projects that makes collaboration and source control more efficient. It is reportedly the world’s largest open source community, with over 21 million repositories that include both code and documentation. In this session, we will learn how to set up a GitHub repository and write documentation in Markdown, as well as learn about merges, forks, branches, commits, and clones. We’ll take a look at the social aspects and other features (like wikis), and discuss how technical communicators can collaborate with developers in GitHub to improve projects.
