I don't understand how to use Github

I am keeping my fcc projects on my computer like: fcc/responsive-web-design/personal-portfolio. I am right now trying to learn git so that I can share my projects but I couldn’t find a way to create a structure like this. I want to point out that I am new to github and I am really confused.
Three major things I want to understand are;

  1. How can i use github in a best way to share my projects.
  2. If I could share my projects like I mentioned above, would it be efficient.
  3. Which subjects are the ones I should really know and be comfortable for my needs and maybe small contributions I will make later.
    I would appreciate it if you can help me.

I would suggest to start with this course, used it myself. 1 hour long, covers git and github basics.

If you go through it, do an additional research during the process, and ask more questions if needed.

I did complete that course and did research but still I couldn’t find answers to some of my questions.

Don’t worry if Git / GitHub sounds alien to you as all of us went through that phase.

Check out FCC GitHub course on YT

Also till you’re fully comfortable with GitHub in next few quarters, I suggest to use command line tool for all the git actions instead of using some GH client software or VSCode extension.

The more you practice, more you get comfortable with GH

Similar to Googling search in YT for particular topic “how to upload project on github” etc

If list of your questions now is different from what you wrote in the original post, ask it, we’ll try to figure it out.

If those 3 original questions are still needed to be answered - let us know.
