Creating a Repository on Git Hub

As a codenewbie, i was recently assigned with a project that needed to be submitted on GitHub. I resorted to reading up on the process of creating a Repository and everything Open Source and I found it pretty interesting. So, I would like to share everything I've learnt and I'm learning (I hope I can).

So firstly we would be Creating a Repository and as we journey, we'll talk about Open Source and everything in between.

Step 1: The New Repository

In the upper-right corner of any page, use the drop-down menu, and select New repository, you could also choose other options depending on the most appealing.

Step 1. Click on the plus sign

Step 2: The Naming

GitHub would sometimes suggest witty titles, you could use them or not use them. Here is a guide to Naming a Repo

You could add a Public tag unless you have a reason to put it in private.

Also attaching a ReadMe file since a ReadMe file is like a "tell it file."

Basically, if you want your reader or user to understand the codes etc, Attach a ReadMe file.

Name your Repository

After which you create a Repository.

Step 3: The files
