In this guide we'll show you the basics of a very popular tool that Silicon Valley has to offer.
Git is a open-source version control system that is used for software development. Developers are able to push code changes into repositories among other features to make development easier and more fun!
GitHub is a web-based Git repository hosting service, which offers all of the distributed revision control and source code management (SCM) functionality of git as well as adding its own features. Such features include; bug tracking, forking projects, feature requests, task management, wikis, and blame history so you know which developer to get mad at if something were to break.
If you do not have a GitHub account yet, your very first step would be to sign up at GitHub and verifying your account.
Now that you have an account, you would need to install and setup git locally on your computer.
Your next step is to create a repository and start naming your project. Once that's done, you can start with uploading your application!
Tip: Do you wish to deploy your repo project to your own CloudSite? We'll show you how to do it here!
