Event Description

Welcome to MLH Localhost

During this workshop, you’ll guide participants through setting up a GitHub account, installing GitKraken, and learning the magic of collaborating seamlessly using the GitKraken Git Client and Glo Boards.

Participants will make edits to a simple team webpage to learn how to use the GitKraken Git Client — a visual interface for interacting with Git, no command line required.
