Hello, I’ve had several years since I last programmed anything. Now I’m getting back into it, and I’m doing that by designing a web application that simulates the results of a certain game, based on player input.
Of course I heard a lot about GitHub being great for projects like these, and supposedfly when people apply for programming jobs (which I likely will do in the future) they just link to their GitHub page, and that’s why I opened this up, however as many videos as I watch, I cannot get a grasp on how this is meant to work.
-I created a repository, but I do not know how to put files onto it
-I do not know if they’d at all function on this site, or if it’s just static code
-I don’t know if GitHub provides its own SQL database
-I do not understand why a repository I created online in the web-browser does not appear in the desktop version of GitHub
-Shouldn’t I publish my webapllication on my private website? And if I did, what would be left here?
These are likely some initial beginner problems, and I apologize if they’re obvious, but I cannot get started with anything yet, and I already lost a few days trying to get behind it. I apologize, but I just have to ask.
Thank you for your time
