Gittin’ my Star Trek project to the final frontier
After attending the Strange Loop conference in St. Louis this past weekend, I am both in awe of my programming peers and also doubly motivated to continue working my project. After explaining the gist of my gender + Star Trek + data analysis idea to a few awesome lady coders, they implored that I put it on GitHub immediately.
First, I downloaded a prettier terminal — Hyper. Just like all of all of the people before me, I feel like such a badass when I use the command line. Gotta thank 80s hacker movies for that.
What I learned while putting my project on GitHub using bash commands:
- $ pwd (where am I?)
- $ mkdir (new home where my amazing code can live)
- $ cd (getting to the right place)
- $ touch (new files to replace my random runkits)
- $ git init (tracking my biz)
- $ git status (plz no code red)
- $ git add (moving on up)
- $ git commit (too late for cold feet)
- $ git push (real good, dun dun dun duuuun)
And at long last, here it is in all of its glory, my first ever GitHub repo.
