Project Management



Project Management

In this week, Prof. Neil told us to focus on project management techniques. Project management is the application of processes, methods, skills, knowledge and experience to achieve specific project objectives according to the project acceptance criteria within agreed parameters. Project management has final deliverables that are constrained to a finite timescale and budget. Why do I need this technology? because of the fast-paced nature of the Fabacdemy programme. I must to apply this technique over the course of the next 20 weeks, and especially during the final project development period.




Git is a free and open source. And, it is a distributed version control system, which enables me to work locally but also push my changes to other servers, after that I can clone the files to local storage. So, I can work on any computers and it's easy to track back.I learn git from this tutorial.

Clone the Repository

For Fab Academy 2020, we will store our learning website in the Gitlab, and use the git to control the version.

Install the Git and add the SSH key in the gitlab.

① Sign up FabLabs.io using certain email address [email protected], Then login git.fabacademy.org with fablabs.io account.


② Download and Install the Git software in the Git website.


③ You can find the Git CMD, GIT GUI and GIT Bash after install the Git software.


④ Run the Git Bash and check the version.


⑤ The first thing I should do when I install Git is to set my user name and email address. This is important because every Git commit uses this information, and it’s immutably baked into the commits my start creating.

Git config --global user.name “Dark”
Git config --global user.email “[email protected]


⑥ Enter command to generate the SSH key in the command line.

ssh-keygen -t rsa -C “[email protected]


⑦ Check the SSH key type this command.



⑧ Paste you computer’s publish SSH key to the form.


⑨ Find and open your SSH keys in your GitLab.


Clone your repository

① New a project of website file on computer.

② Input command in the Git Bash.

cd d:
cd Information/Scuspark/Fablab/
mkdir Webpage
cd Webpage


③ Clone remote repository.

git clone [email protected]:acdemany/fabacademy/2020/labs/taipei/students/zihao-lin.git

In this part, i encountered the problem! I was facing an authentication problem,where I was not getting permission to concenct with my repository.


After the $ ssh -T [email protected] troubleshooting method, I suspected that there was an issue with my ssh key.

How to build the website

In this week, the first thing i did was understand the basics of HTML. So, I used this websit to learn HTML and CSS.

Overview of HTML

HTML is the standard markup language for creating Web pages. It stands for Hyper Text Markup Language and describes the structure of Web pages using markup. HTML elements are the building blocks of HTML pages and represented by tags. HTML tags label pieces of content such as "heading", "paragraph", "table", and so on. Browsers do not display the HTML tags, but use them to render the content of the page.

HTML page structure

Below is a visualization of an HTML page structure:


Overview of CSS

CSS is a language that describes the style of an HTML document. It describes how HTML elements are to be displayed on screen, paper, or in other media. CSS saves a lot of work. It can control the layout of multiple web pages all at once. External stylesheets are stored in CSS files.

Three Ways to Insert CSS

There are three ways of inserting a style sheet: External CSS\ Internal CSS\ Inline CSS.

Build the website

Use the spirit8 template in the themezy to quickly build up my learning website. All the web template are free. Down the files and unzip all files to Webpage folder, the template only include the main page, so use the Atom to manage the website and create the all pages of project.


Student Agreement

I have read the student agreement carefully and will abide by it during my study.
