This is how to get going with the course, to verify that you have all essentials in place and to see that you can use them. Later assignments will build upon this assignment.
The objective is to learn how to use Git and GitLab and you will create a small website where you will write reports from your assignemnts.
This assignment is not graded, but you still need to perform it since you will use it all throughout the course.
You have checked out the general information on the course.
You have seen the course introduction.
You have installed the lab environment.
You have access to the course environment on GitLab.
If you are new to Git, you might want to work through the document "Work with Git" to gain some basic knowledge on how to work with Git and Git repos.
These are the requirements to fullfill the assignment.
- You have a git repo on Github named "xx222yy-report-page" where xx222yy is your lnu-username. You shall use this repo for the writing reports on the assignments in the course. Start of by cloning the repo to your computer:
git clone https://gitlab.lnu.se/1dv525/student/xx222yy-report-page.git
- You are now ready to start creating your own report website for the course. The repo has a
README.mdthat contains the details on what to do.
Do these if you have the will, time and energy. They may enhance your learning of the course topics.
- Do you have a live webserver out there? Set up this new website and make it live on it.
This is how to submit this assignment.

What is a TIL? TIL is an acronym for "Today I Learned" which playfully indicates that there are always new things to learn, every day. You usually pick up things you have learned and where you might have hiked to a little extra about its usefulness or simplicity, or it was just a new lesson for the day that you want to note.
