Set Up the Repository

To participate in this course, you’re going to need to import a project from the GitHub Training organization. Importing a project will essentially copy the repository – including all of the files, branches, and history to your account.

instructions for using the repository import tool

  1. While logged into GitHub, navigate to the Import tool.
  2. In the Your old repository’s clone URL field, enter:
  3. Ensure that the Owner field is your account.
  4. In the Name field, enter a new name for your repository. Since this course not only teaches you about merge conflicts but also provides a GitHub Pages powered resume template, maybe something like resume would work.
  5. Select Public under the privacy options.
  6. Click Begin import.
