By Gabriel

Last Updated: 9/29/2017

If you are following our tutorials to integrate GitHub and Android Studio for easy version control, you will first need to create a GitHub organization so that you have a place you store your repositories. (Click here for an introduction to GitHub and an overview of the whole process.) Luckily, GitHub provides this free to users in education, which includes FIRST® robotics. Here’s what you should do (you should probably have a coach or someone else who will be with the team a long time do this):

  1. Make a free GitHub account if you haven’t already.
  2. Go to education.github.com and click on “request a discount.”
  3. Sign in using your existing GitHub account and fill out the form.
  4. Wait for GitHub to approve your request.

Now you’re ready to make a repository!
