Basic Information

Git tracks the history of code changes and allows multiple people to work on the same codebase simultaneously.

Why not to use a GUI at first

We recommend starting out using the CLI (Command line interface). This is because it forces you to learn how to actually use git, whether you use git from the command line or through a GUI you need to understand what you are doing and what you need to do, by typing out the commands you learn the steps required for the workflow you are using. Swapping back and forth between a GUI and CLI is easy once you have learnt the basics.
