Earlier this year, we launched GitHub Learning Lab to help people of all skill levels use GitHub. Our initial course offerings included “Introduction to GitHub”, “Communicating using Markdown”, “Managing Merge Conflicts”, “GitHub Pages”, and “Moving Your Project to GitHub”. More than 3,700 students have successfully completed a Learning Lab course.

Now we’re releasing four new courses on Learning Lab for learners of all skill levels:

Uploading to GitHub and Migrating to GitHub

We broke out the existing “Moving to GitHub” course into two new courses: “Uploading to GitHub” and “Migrating to GitHub”. This lets you focus on bringing your projects to GitHub, no matter where they are.

Community Starter Kit

GitHub loves the open source community, and we want your project to appeal to both veteran open source contributors and newcomers alike. In this course, you will learn what settings to use and files you should add to your repository to provide the information and features new contributors will need to be successful.

Introduction to HTML

Learning Lab is a great way to learn how to use GitHub more effectively, but why stop there? In our first non-GitHub focused course, join Learning Lab for an “Introduction to HTML”.
