Getting started with git and GitHub

Published 08 Oct 2010

As some of my hobby projects are coming together, I have meant to move them from Google Code to GitHub for quite some time. Tonight, I decided to give it a try.

I first visited the Git download page and downloaded the latest git release for OS X. Since configuring git involves a couple of steps, I found this page really helpful.

However, after installing git and getting the terminal ready, I soon found myself entering commands into the terminal without any real understanding of what I was doing. Pull? Fetch? Clone? What the hell is going on here? Guess I have a lot to learn :)

Nevertheless, my hobby projects eventually ended up on GitHub and I now have the best incentive ever to master git - do so or never see my source code ever again.
