Basic Setup

All git commands start with git

Before you use git you need to set up two configuration settings:

git config --global "Your name goes here"
git config --global ""

To confirm type:

git config --global --list

Here is what is on my computer:

jcg@jcg-netbook:~/code/venvs/git_course$ git config --global --list
