Git and GitHub - First experience and Crib

When I first embarked on my journey into web development, I had no inkling that I would soon find myself grappling with Git and GitHub. The thought of using a terminal seemed daunting, and I never imagined it would play a significant role in my coding endeavors. However, as I delved deeper into the world of web development, I quickly realized the importance of version control and collaboration, and thus my adventure with Git and GitHub began.

My initial encounter with Git and GitHub was anything but smooth. I struggled to comprehend the commands and concepts, feeling overwhelmed by the seemingly complex interface. As someone who had never used a terminal extensively before, navigating through the command line was like traversing uncharted territory.

Despite the initial setbacks, I refused to be deterred. With determination and perseverance, I gradually familiarized myself with the basics of Git and GitHub. Through online tutorials and documentation, I learned about repositories, commits, branches, and the intricacies of version control.

After much trial and error, I finally reached a breakthrough: I successfully pushed my first HTML project to GitHub. It was a moment of triumph, a testament to my perseverance and willingness to venture beyond my comfort zone.

But the journey didn't end there. I decided to compile a crib — a concise guide outlining the steps I took to push my project to GitHub. While I knew there were countless other ways to unilize Git and GitHub, I focused on documenting the approach that worked for me, hoping it would serve as a helpful resource for fellow beginners.
