Error while attempting to start Intro to GitHub course

Hi, when I attempt to begin the Introduction to GitHub course, I get an error:  “An unexpected error has occurred while registering for the course. Please try again later!”  (See attached screen shot.)  I saw that someone else got this error because they didn’t have an e-mail address specified in their profile.  I didn’t, so I added it.  But after removing the github-slideshow repository and trying to start the course, I get the same error.  Any idea as what’s going on?

Chiming in - just tried with the same error message. 

  • the repo is actually created

  • the course is stuck however

Hi there, thanks for reporting this issue! It looks like this error occurred during a minor outage. Would you mind de-registering from the course and enrolling again? Let me know if the issue persists.
Thank you,
