Event Description

Welcome to MLH Localhost

Localhost is a great way to build your tech skills and hang out with the hacker community. If you'd like to attend the workshop all you need to do is register on this page and check the page again an hour before the event begins. You'll find the link to the Zoom as well as a bunch of resources for the workshop!

This workshop will cover a basic and critical skill for developers: how to collaborate. It will cover critical tools like version control, Git, and GitHub. It also will cover a basic terminology and best practices.

Powered by GitHub

The GitHub platform is an incredibly powerful collaboration tool. Anyone can collaborate on projects using GitHub! In this workshop, participants will create an account, become familiar with the GitHub platform, and use a best practice collaboration workflow to add their hometown to a map of all Localhost participants!

Set up Git locally

Many developers choose to use Git locally on their own computers. Once participants have had the chance to edit the project in the browser, they’ll learn how to do the same thing to a project locally.
