Maybe I'm an idiot...I feel like I've read every post online and asked everyone around me how to do this, but I can't figure it out. How do you push data you've collected to Github using Github Desktop?? I have it set up on my desktop and can navigate around the app. I'm not sure how to get the data I've collected and push it to a specific project on Github. Any help?

@victoriaakelly great question! Our training team put together a tutorial video that may be helpful for you. We also have some GitHub Desktop help documentation available for you to reference. Here's a basic workflow using GitHub Desktop:
1. Make changes in your project using your IDE/text editor
2. Switch back to GitHub Desktop -- you should see changed files in the `Changes` tab in the left sidebar
3. Commit those changes in the bottom-left corner of GitHub Desktop. Make sure to enter a commit summary!
4. Click the `Push origin` button to push the changes up to the remote repository on GitHub. If you have not yet created a repository on GitHub you will see a `Publish repository` option that will allow you to create the remote repository.
You've now pushed your changes up to GitHub. If you encoutner any errors, please let me know! I would also recommend reading through some of our recommended resources for getting started with Git and GitHub. I hope that helps!
I made changes in my text editor but nothing came up in my github desktop? I used atom like the tutorial did and named everythign the same as my github desktop but nothing has popped up in 'changes'.
