GitHub commits on Jupyter Notebook with date before 2008

Hi to everyone

A few days ago i saw that the initial commit of Jupyter Notebook’s repo dates from 6 July 2005.

Github launched in April 2008 (according to wikipedia).

I wanted to know:

  • How you worked before github was launched?
  • When you started using github?

Thanks in advance :smiley:

I can probably help you with the first one.
The git commit information can include data back from when git was being used not in conjunction with Github. Plus you can back stamp anything, see here.
