Setting up a GitHub account

During the course we will need a GitHub account. With the GitHub account we will be able to sign in to two other services (Travis CI and Read the Docs). The motivation for using GitHub and these services is to provide a real life hands-on experience using tools with massive traction and network effect.

We recommend that all participants who do not yet have a GitHub account, create one before the workshop starts.

This account can later be removed, if desired, according to the instructions given below.

Instructions for removing accounts

You may wish to remove the projects and accounts that we have created. Here we list instructions for how to achieve that:


Travis CI

At the moment it is not possible for a user to delete their Travis CI account directly from their account settings. However, you can send an email to and ask them to delete your account. They are very responsive and will help you with the account deletion.
