Code Conquest Newsletter #5

GitHub is a popular free hosting service for code projects. Code projects on GitHub are powered by Git, a ‘revision control’ system that lets you collaborate with others and track changes in your project.

GitHub is a good tool to have in your arsenal, but it can be a bit hard to figure out. That’s why GitHub has made a free, interactive training tutorial on Git, called Try Git. The tutorial teaches you the basic commands of Git and how to get your first project set up on GitHub.

Try Git may not make you a master of GitHub, but it does give you that push you need to get started.


Codecademy Plans PHP Training

The hugely popular provider of free coding training, Codecademy, is assembling a new series on PHP, the world’s most popular scripting language. There’s only one lesson at the moment, and Codecademy has turned to crowdsourcing to get the series completed.
