Getting started with git and GitHub

Oct 8, 2010 gitgithub

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 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 gi, I found myself typing git commands into the Terminal without really understanding what I was doing. Pull? Fetch? Clone? What the hell is going on? I guess I have a lot to learn :)

Nevertheless, my projects did eventually end up on GitHub and I now have the best incentive ever to master git. If I don’t, I’ll never see my source code again.
