I have a question, we need to create a repo on github first, then only we can push our repo? Can we not directly push a repo to our profile and it creates the repo from the folder name?

Just one note: if the repository doesn't exist in Github, first you will have to create it:

i saw that vs code does it for you without us having to go to github to create one first

Alternatively, if you prefer to do this stuff from your CLI, you can install github for your terminal and then is as simple as typing: gh repo create your_repo
