You should see a message “Your server is starting up.” and below it a status bar as your personal server starts.

While we won’t be covering how to use GitHub in this course, if you are already familiar with using git, or would like to learn how to use it on your own, you are welcome to use it. I will try my best to address any issues or questions you have about using GitHub in this class.
First, create your own GitHub respository for your labs and homework assignments. Download lab and data files from this website and upload to your JupyterHub. You can then use the terminal in JupyterHub to can add, commit, and push them to your repository as you work on labs and homeworks.
You can organize files into folders, click the “New Folder” icon in the upper left menu to create a new folder.
To create a new Jupyter Notebook file, click on the “Python 3” icon under the “Notebook” section of a Launcher tab. (To open a new Launcher tab, got to File > New Launcher)
To save a Jupyter Notebook file you're working in, click the Save icon on the top left of the Notebook window, or go to File > Save Notebook
Download files to your computer by right-clicking on the file in the navigation pane, then click on Download.
Logging out of the JupyterHub will NOT cause any of your work to be lost or deleted, it simply shuts down some of the computing resources (like shutting off your laptop at the end of the day)
