Creating your personal website at GitHub Pages

This course is an overview of working with Github pages to quickly deploy a public-facing, static site.  The site can be used for anything such as your personal brand, giving your name and/or business a personal landing platform, and pointing your customers to you. 

During the course, you’ll see how to quickly set up a new repository to host your files and get them to GitHub.  You will then put your web pages into the repository and then set the repository to be hosted via GitHub pages.

After the hosting is enabled, you can optionally point your own custom domain at the GitHub pages and then you will be able to enable HTTPS to make the site secure.

You will only be hosting static content, but using Simple HTML and a free template, you can quickly get a professional site built.

A couple of lectures in the course will show you how to do things like set up a calendly link for people to schedule calls with you and link to some youtube videos.

At the end of the course, you will be able to easily get your site up and your name/brand out there, so that the world can start benefitting from your gifts.
