Getting Started With GIT

GIT is a version control system that tracks all the changes in a project or file. It is widely used by developers all over the world due to its simplicity and efficiency. GIT and GitHub are not the same – GitHub is an online host or storage where files or projects can be saved, updated or edited using GIT.

” So, GIT is like your Keyboard
GitHub is your Computer Memory. “

GIT is:

1. Open Source
2. Free
3. Distributed
4. Fast
5. Efficient

1. git init initiates a new local repository
2. git status shows current project status
3. git add . copies all the files to the repository
