This week

During this week’s cohort call, we will:

  • look at project structure as we build open projects
  • go over the standard files in open projects
    • README
    • LICENSE
    • CODE_OF_CONDUCT.md
    • CONTRIBUTING.md

    The exact project structure and files used may look different on your project.
