Getting Ready

Assignment Repository

Set up the repository that you will use to submit most assignments for this course by following the directions in the main README of the LaunchCodeEducation/liftoff-assignments repo.


Create a free Trello account. Trello is a project management tool. You will use it to document and organize tasks while working on your project.

After creating your account, create a new board for your project. A single board typically contains all of the information and tasks for a specific project. On your new board, create 3 lists. From left to right, name these:

  • Next
  • In Progress
  • Done

Git Refresher

You will be using Git extensively throughout this course. Read our Git Refresher, and if you plan on working on a group project, also read the Group Project Git Workflow.
