0:00 Here's a mistake that's easy to make to use GIT or Git hub interchangeably.
0:07 We're going to work with a GIT hub repository when really you just meant a git
0:11 repository that may or may not be on git I'm sure that I'll make that mistake through the course. Maybe I haven't I haven't even noticed it yet.
0:19 So I'm sorry if I do. However, it's very important when you're new to git to point out that git is
0:26 not related to is not associated with does not come from git hub or git lab or any of these other hosts.
0:34 So git it's a program I can go to my computer as long as git is installed and type get and say git -- help.
0:43 And it'll tell me the different things I can do with git. Git hub is a
0:50 server. Software as a service platform that you can create an account at where you
0:56 can create a github repository that will be hosted by them and git can talk to it right, but git and git hub. Not related. Not the same thing.
1:05 In order to do stuff on Git hub. Usually you use GIT but you don't have to.
1:09 And so just remember git is the program that does the processing and when you use
1:15 the tools in the UI that I showed you often it's shelling out to run Git behind the scenes or using some get API internally to do the work as
1:24 if it were the program. And then when the code is shared or backed up on a remote server often times that's Git hub.
1:32 But it could be places like git lab or even servers you set up yourself so git not equal to get hub, but they both are great.
