Getting Git

A comprehensive video course from git init to Git Master.

Installing Git

In this video we'll install Git.

If you're on a Unix environment, which includes Mac OS X (that's what I'm on), you probably already have Git installed.

You can check this by running git --version.

In this case, I'm running Git, version 2.10.

As long as you're running Git version 2.0 or above, you can continue on to the next video.

If you need to install or upgrade Git, visit for the latest version of Git.

If you are on Windows, I recommend downloading Git for Windows as it not only includes Git, but also Git Bash which provides a command line with Bash emulation so your commands behave as they would on a Unix environment.

Using Git Bash will minimize any differences in the commands you'll see in these videos.

So, take a minute to install or upgrade Git before continuing to the next video.
