  6. Open the file you just created in your text editor.
  7. Create a list of some of your favorite resources so far related to coding/Turing/git/GitHub/etc. These resources do not need to be ones that we've discussed in class. They can be anything that has helped you so far in your journey to learn software development.
  8. Add your changes.
  9. Commit your changes with a properly formatted commit message.
  10. Push your changes to your fork.

This next part is not something we discussed during Session 4 and will involve some figuring out on your own.

  1. Use the Googling trick to search GitHub's help area to figure out how to create a pull request from a fork. It may also be helpful to figure out what pull request means.
  2. Open a pull request for your changes.
  • Once your pull request is open, you're done! You don't need to submit or paste anything since we will get a notification that you've opened a pull request.

Task 3: How do Git and GitHub work? (55 min)

Use about half of a blank sheet of paper to draw out a diagram that shows how you understand the git workflow. Then, use the other half to show how this workflow fits with GitHub.

  • Post this diagram on the Mod 0 Slack channel.

Task 4: OOP and Bottles (12 min)

  • Watch this video. Then choose your own real-world class and objects of that class. In the space below, define and name the attributes and methods for your class and the associated objects.
