Well, I’m a high school student so I’m not an actual programmer, just as a hobbie. But I like it and want to make my code free and open source (and I also want to start a project with a friend) so that’s why I started using GitHub. But I don’t use it very often, mostly becasue I have to study a lot, and I don’t know how it works.
So I don’t know what these green ++ and red – symbols besides the name of each contributor are. You can see them after you click on “Contributors”. Are they like the likes and dislikes of YouTube?
If so, wow, I got a couple of thousand and it kinda scares me to know that so many people have seen my code. Which is actually a good thing, cause that means that I will work hard to do it as good as I can so that people can enjoy and not hate my work.
If not, what are these crosses and lines?
