I am new to programming and I recently completed the Scientific Computing with Python certificate and its projects. The projects were completed on replit and I’m not sure whether I can just post the links to those projects on my resume.
I have heard that people use github to show their codes and projects. Do I need to create a github in order to show those projects and other future freeCodeCamp projects?
Using git is a fundamental skill - you should want to develop that skill and storing your work on github is a step in the right direction.
I’m not a big fan of online IDEs like replit. I mean they can be great tools for learning, but they are not professional tools, afaik. I think a better approach is to store your code on github and host your projects somewhere. That is a more “real world” solution, like would happen on a job. I don’t know about hosting Python projects, so maybe I’m wrong on that. It’s also tough if you don’t know how to build a web page.
But at the very least, you should get in that habit of storing your code on github and start getting used to github.
Yeah, github is for storing and sharing code. You can also use it as a place for hirers to look up your code.
