The Dreaded "Key is Invalid" Error When Adding SSH Keys to Github

Date: Jun 11, 2013

Github is great, but the user experience falls short when adding SSH Keys to your account. Maybe it's just a problem for Windows users using Putty Generator.

The key (no pun intended) is you must add a space before ssh-rsa. Notice the cursor one space past the ssh-rsa. I hope this helps other Windows developers who find themselves struggling with this step.
