Getting started with git and GitHub

As some of my hobby projects are coming together nicely, I have been wanting to host them on GitHub instead of Google Code for quite some time. Tonight, I decided to give it a try.

First of, I visited the Git OS X download page and downloaded the latest release of git. Second, this help page was a real treat. It contains a lot of info. However, I soon found myself entering commands into the terminal without any understanding of what I was doing.

Since I like to be in control, this naturally did not feel that good at all. However, my hobby projects eventually ended up on GitHub and I have a real incentive to master git.
