Up and running with GitHub Pages

You’ve started learning how to code with Codecademy, Treehouse, Linda...

But how do you communicate real-world application of these skills and display your competence to potential employers?

Build in public.

I'll show you how, by getting you up and running with GitHub and Github Pages - even set up a custom domain name - in just a few minutes. I'll cover all the configurations and walk through the workflow I use for making changes to my personal site using Git and Visual Studio Code.

What you’ll learn:

  • How to set up a GitHub Pages site that uses your own custom domain.
  • A real-world workflow for updating your site, including: Git commands needed for cloning your repo, viewing status of your work, committing and pushing changes up to GitHub.
  • How to use Visual Studio code to quickly spin up a server to view your work as you make changes.

Tools you'll need:

  • Git
  • Visual Studio Code
  • Terminal
  • Mac
