Welcome to Sema!
We're excited to have you join us!
First, before we get to all the cool things that Sema can do and how awesome it can make your code reviews, we need to get you set up with Sema.
In this guide, you will learn about creating a Sema account and logging in for the first time.
So, let's get started!
To follow and complete this guide, please already have an account with GitHub. If you don't already have an account with GitHub, check out Getting Started with your GitHub account.
Step 1 — Go to Sema!
First, we'll want to visit Sema.
Next, click the Join Sema button in the navigation bar.
Step 2 — Linking Sema to GitHub
There are two options: Join Sema with GitHub or Sign in with GitHub.
You'll need a GitHub account to continue.
So, if you haven't experienced the awesomeness of GitHub yet, go ahead and make an account there first!
Otherwise, click the Sign in with GitHub button!
You're doing great! So you've either created a GitHub account or signed in with yours, let's keep going!
You will then go to the following screen:
See the Authorize Sema Code Reviews button?
Click that button to get one step closer to the power of Sema; we only use GitHub authentication at the moment.
So, here is a little information you'll need to fill out: your first and last name. Also, make sure that you are using the email that you were invited with!
We use the given information to personalize your experience with Sema and make it as fun and entertaining as possible.
Click the Continue button once you have finished completing your profile information.
Now, you've gotten to the Here's how it works pop-up!
Exploring through the pop-ups by clicking Next teaches you more about Sema and all of its wonders.
Before you finish clicking through it all, don't forget to click the Add Extension Here button to add the Sema Chrome Extension to your Chrome browser.
Note: The Sema Extension only works in Chrome-based browsers. You'll learn a bit more about what it does in our next guide, linked at the bottom of this page.
One of the great things Sema can do is use Snippets to improve your organization's code reviews!
If you are interested in helping to make your organization's code reviews more impactful, click Create Organization.
Otherwise, go ahead and click Skip This for Now.
Look at you go!
