We’ve welcomed a lot of new community members recently who have asked if we have tutorials for contributing to the project (❤️). And yes, we certainly do. Whether you prefer the command line vs GUIs or written blog posts vs videos, we’ve got you covered.
Working with git and GitHub is an interesting thing because there’s so many ways to do it. Even though I’m usually all about the command line, I prefer my GitHub experience be a GUI via GitHub Desktop for Windows (or Mac). Many community members, however, prefer the simplicity of the git command line.
