Aside: splitting this out as a separate conversation - one topic per question is usually best
Continuing the discussion from Core Datasets Managing Curator:
@alexpeek1 you don’t need to create JSON at all. CSV is perfect.
Re github: have you used “git” the tool before? If you have we can walk through creating files locally on your machine then pushing them to github using git.
If you haven’t I suggest taking a look at https://github.com/blog/1327-creating-files-on-github (basically you will want to copy and paste the contents of your CSV file into the file you create. Again we can help walk you through how you get the contents of your CSV file - download it from google docs, then open it with notepad or similar …).
