Next month I’m talking about GitHub at Seattle’s Write the Docs Meetup. The audience will include doc writers with a wide range of GitHub experience. While I use GitHub for hosting a couple of websites, I don’t do much documentation there.
I’d love input from this group. What would you, as a documentation writer, want to learn about GitHub? If you use GitHub for writing documentation, which commands or features make your life easier?
These are some topics I may cover:
- What is GitHub? Why use it? Who uses it?
- Repos: Creating, cloning, forking
- Committing and pushing changes
- GitHub Pages: Jekyll, Markdown
