I am a “one man shop” developer and have been since 2007.  I’ve been using SVN (Subversion) for about 15 years, and have pulled stuff from Github but never really used it. 

I’m hoping that this forum can help me get up and running with Git-Hub as I am finding there is almost too much “help” to figure out.  (Like tutorials, vs GitHub Training, which I think is paid, vs Docs) 

In addition, I’m trying to figure out how to work with Clients  who I think should probably have their own GitHub account and repositories.  (I.e. they are paying me to develop code that they own and control.)

At this point, I’m not even sure where I should go to post my questions and get started.

Thanks for reaching out @whitekn3. We’re glad you’re here.

You can post your questions about Git and GitHub in the appropriately named How to use Git and GitHub board. As far as your question specifically about working with clients, I’ve seen it be a few ways: the client having the repository under their account, the developer having the repository under their account, and even the developer having the repository until the work is finished and then transferring ownership of the repository to the client. It just depends on how you want to organize your work.

I hope that helps!

I’m making out with HTML and the likes of CSS and the whole bundle of languages
