Guide for new coders

The following guide is for beginners when working with me. Use them as reference while working and also read the comments in the code blocks to understand better.

If you find something is missing or needs to be updated, open a PR on Github.

Git

# bad commit messages
git commit -m "commit 2"
git commit -m "changes"
git commit -m "new changes"
git commit -m "feature 8"

# good commit messages
git commit -m "Fix heading alignment."
git commit -m "Update user profile settings"
git commit -m "Database query for unique user search"
# command to checkout to new branch
git checkout -b new_branch_name
