In this tutorial, we explain to you how to upload a project to Github on your Windows desktop.

What is GitHub?

GitHub is a code hosting platform for collaboration and version control. GitHub lets you (and others) work together on projects.

Let see how to upload a project to Github on windows

1. Install git and create a GitHub account 

The first two things you’ll want to install git and create a free GitHub account.

Follow the instructions here to install git (if it’s not already installed). Note that for this tutorial we will be using git on the command line only. While there are some great git GUIs (graphical user interfaces), I think it’s easier to learn git using git-specific commands first and then to try out a git GUI once you’re more comfortable with the command. 

Once you’ve done that, create a GitHub account here.  Accounts are free for public repositories, but there’s a charge for private repositories.)

2. Create new Repositories

Create a new repository on GitHub. To avoid errors, do not initialize the new repository with README, license, or files. You can add these files after your project has been pushed to GitHub.

Click on New repository
