A consultant will lead you through retrieving and responding to the diagnostic.
For the diagnostic itself, you have 30 minutes.
Retrieve diagnostic from Github
Open the repository on github.com
Navigate to this repository in Chrome. The URL should be in slack forum.
If necessary, login to GitHub. If you are not logged in, the
Sign in button
will be at the top right of the page when you navigate to
Fork the repository
Click the Fork button in the upper right hand corner of the page.
GitHub creates a copy of the repository and redirects the browser.
Create a folder to hold diagnostics
Open a terminal window then at the shell prompt:
cd ~ mkdir wdi cd wdi mkdir diagnostics cd diagnostics
cd ~ - change directory - ensures that you start in your home
mkdir creates a new directory/folder with the supplied name. If you get an
error message that includes
File exists when you run
mkdir it probably means
you've already created the directory and can move on to the following
Clone the repository
On GitHub, in your copy of the repository, find the clone URL widget - SSH/HTTPS
drop-down, corresponding URL text-box, and
Copy to clipboard button (centered
in the following image).
Before copying the clone URL to the clipboard, click the button to select
SSH. In Which remote URL should I
https remotes. We will always use
ssh remotes during your
Click the 'Copy to clipboard' button.
Remember it should say
SSH in the drop-down when you do.
Back in the terminal (you should still be in the
diagnostics directory created
Then paste the copied clone URL, run the command, and change into the newly created directory:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:<GitHub username>/fundamentals-diagnostic.git Cloning into 'fundamentals-diagnostic'... remote: Counting objects: 5, done. remote: Compressing objects: 100% (5/5), done. remote: Total 5 (delta 0), reused 4 (delta 0), pack-reused 0 Receiving objects: 100% (5/5), done. Checking connectivity... done.
Then change into the directory you've just cloned:
response branch then open
diagnostic.md with atom.
git branch response git checkout response Switched to branch 'response' atom diagnostic.md
You may use ANY resource, other than someone else in the workspace, to help you complete the diagnostic.

questions and replace it with your answer. Code answers need not be in
Please start to review any linter errors you may see. The error will inform you what the error is and which line and column number the error is located. Linters help us to write clean, symantically correct code so we should start to pay attention to what the errors are telling us.
3) Turn in Diagnostic
Stage changed files
git status On branch response Changes not staged for commit: (use "git add <file>..." to update what will be committed) (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working directory) modified: diagnostic.md no changes added to commit (use "git add" and/or "git commit -a")
In order to stage these changes, we need to add the file that has changed:
git add diagnostic.md
Create a git commit
Now that the changes have been staged, we have to make a commit:
git status On branch response Changes to be committed: (use "git reset HEAD <file>..." to unstage) modified: diagnostic.md
When a 'git commit' is executed, Atom will open a text file containing comment
lines (starting with a
#) describing the changes being committed. These lines
are not included in your commit message.
Format for submitting 'git commit' messages.
<headline of the commit> <description of the commit> # Please enter the commit message for your changes. Lines starting # with '#' will be ignored, and an empty message aborts the commit. # On branch bb-prep # Changes to be committed: # modified: diagnostic.md #
Fundamentals diagnostic response as the headline. Hit enter twice to
leave a blank line. Add a description to the commit message. Once your
description is complete, save the file and close the Atom window. This will
commit the message. When you go back to terminal, you should see something like:
git commit [response 29a63bc] 1 file changed, 25 insertion(+), 6 deletion(-) $
Push changes to GitHub
Now, push the changes to your forked repository on Github.
git push origin response Counting objects: 3, done. Delta compression using up to 4 threads. Compressing objects: 100% (3/3), done. Writing objects: 100% (3/3), 304 bytes | 0 bytes/s, done. Total 3 (delta 2), reused 0 (delta 0) To email@example.com:<GitHub username>/fundamentals-diagnostic.git * [new branch] response -> response $
Create a Pull Request
We'll follow the GitHub help article, Creating a pull request skipping step 4.
Congratulations, you have successfully submitted your first diagnostic by opening a pull request! This is the process we will follow for *every diagnostic. The consultant team will respond to your pull request with feedback on the answers to the diagnostic.
