Git is a powerful program that you must learn to use to help you mange your code.

Configuring git

% git config --global "John Galt"
% git config --global
% git config --global push.default simple
% git config --global color.ui true

If you're using OS X or Linux:

% git config --global core.autocrlf input

If you're using Windows:

% git config --global core.autocrlf true

Checking the git configuration

% git config -l Galt

Cloning the class repo from GitHub

% git clone git://
