Getting started with git and GitHub

Oct 8, 2010 · Follow on Twitter and Mastodon gitgithub

As some of my projects are coming together, I want to move them from Google Code to GitHub. Tonight, I decided to give it a try and say hello to git and GitHub.

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

After installing it, I found myself typing commands into the Terminal without understanding anything. Pull? Fetch? Clone? What the hell is going on? I guess I have a lot to learn.

Nevertheless, my projects eventually ended up on GitHub and I now have an incentive to master git. If I don’t, I’ll never see my source code again.
