It was a silly oversight on my part that will make programmers facepalm. I must’ve completely zoned out while watching tutorials about connecting VSCode to Github, or perhaps they logically assumed I had completed the necessary prerequisite: first install Git. I had not.
The other day when I read that VSCode had git integration, I incorrectly thought that was all I needed to connect with Github.
Later when I finally clued in and downloaded Git, the installer was giving me grief and wouldn’t let me proceed with my editor selection:
I discovered it was because I had VS Code open. Oops.
Frankly, it was just one hiccup after another and nothing much was accomplished tonight.
Actually, that’s not true. I now know more about Git than before. I practiced how to stage, commit, and push files. I learned what a SHA-1 hash is, how to clone a repository and create a new branch. And I’ll continue with my research tomorrow.
(See how easy those negative thoughts can creep in. I need to push them away. Shoo! Scat!)
