When working with me, I ask that you create a hosted Git account. By doing so, you create a place where:
- the code I work on will always be available to you
- a history of the changes will always be available to you
- we can communicate via an Issue Tracker to focus our communication
Where to Setup a Hosted Git Account
There are a number of options for hosting your Git projects including Bitbucket, GitHub, and GitLab. For most of my clients who are not already using a hosted Git account, I find Bitbucket is an excellent fit.
At the time of this writing, Bitbucket allows multiple private projects with up to 5 contributors at no charge.
How to Setup a Bitbucket Account
Go to https://bitbucket.org/account/signup/ and complete the form for both you as an individual and for your organization as a team.
How to Add Sal to Your Team
Once you’ve created your team, you can add me as a member. My username is
salcode. Some more experienced users may prefer to add me to a single repository rather than to the entire team, either setup is fine.
Alternatively, you can send me your credentials (username and password) and I will log in and add myself to your team. After I’ve completed this step, I recommend changing your password.
