One step[edit]

If you are running Debian or Ubuntu, run the following command:

sudo apt-get install git-core

That will install the git version control system. If you get an error, let a staff member know.

Set your user name and email[edit]

You'll also want to tell git your name and email address. To do this, type:

   git config --global user.name "your-user-name"
   git config --global user.email "your email"

You can test that they've successfully been set by typing:

   git config --global user.name
   git config --global user.email

Sign up for a Github account[edit]

You can do so at this link.
