Below are the steps on how to create a GitHub repository as a place to store your code or other work you plan on collaborating with others.
- Open the GitHub website and create a new account if you do not have an account.
- Log in to your account.
- From the main page click the New repository button.
- In the Create a new repository window (as shown below), type the Repository name of the repository you want to create with a description.
- Enter a Description.
- Select either Public or Private depending on how you want to share the repository.
- If you want the repository cloned to your computer, select the option to Initialize the repository with a README.
- Finally, click the Create repository button.
Once the GitHub repository has been created, you and anyone else with access can access the repository with Git.
