Commit your changes

As you are working, use Git to commit your changes. Only you can see the changes made to your fork.


Find a Git tutorial if you need help adding and committing the new files.

Commits can be done as a single commit or a series of commits. You can also periodically push your changes to GitHub using the git push command.

Continue to make modifications to your new Learning Path and save them along the way.

When you are ready to submit your Learning Path for review, proceed to the next section and submit a pull request.

Submit a pull request

Before submitting a pull request, make sure hugo runs without errors on the command line. Run this from the top level directory of the repository.



The output should be a table similar to the one below with no other error messages.

If there are any errors, such as incorrect formatting of metadata, fix them and try again.

After you have reviewed the new material using hugo server and there are no issues running hugo submit a GitHub pull request.

You can now submit a GitHub pull request.


If you are new to GitHub, please go to GitHub’s documentation to learn how to create a pull request from a GitHub fork.

Optionally, if you would like to add your new Learning Path content to the automated testing framework, follow the guidelines in the Appendix: How to test your code .


After submitting a pull request, automated checks will run to validate your metadata format and the Learning Path team will start reviewing your submission. This is done for technical accuracy and to review writing style. Watch the pull request for review comments and respond as needed. Once the pull request is merged, the website is automatically updated with the new contribution.

Note 1

If there are small typos or formatting issues, we will fix them before publishing. This is done to reduce the amount of back-and-forth overhead on small issues; you will always be able to view all changes through GitHub and let us know if you object to any changes.

Note 2

If there are large factual or reproducibility errors in your contribution, we will contact you via the pull request to resolve them before publishing.

Updating Learning Paths

Learning Paths should be always up to date and high quality. Over time software may change and instructions may be out of date.

Learning Path content is automatically monitored for out of date material. We may contact you to confirm a Learning Path is still up to date or to request some modifications to a Learning Path that has become out of date.

Community members may also submit feedback on Learning Paths so we appreciate any help on keeping content current.

Keep an eye out for requests and please respond as needed.

Thank you for creating and sharing a new Learning Path!
