Working with Git is great, but before you see the real benefits of using Git you'll need to have your project hooked up to a remote repository.
Most people enter the world of Git when they are brought on to a project with multiple developers. In this case, there is likely already an existing repo, and all you need to learn to do is pull the latest changes, and push your own.
Navigating to your code in the terminal
First, you'll need to get a local site up and running. You can do so using MAMP, Kalabox, or any other tool that makes that easier, but make sure you can find out where the files are saved on disk. You'll need to get there from the command line to follow along with the rest of this post.
Open your terminal, and navigate to this location. I do this using the
cd command. cd stands for "change directory".
