Git for Beginners (and DropBox Users) I first began using Git because Github was where all the cool kids hung out.
They posted all their cool code and snippets and projects online and had dozens of followers. Yet the only people who could see my super awesome projects that printed “Hello World” were me and the Chrome incognito man. He has seen my code, among other things. So I looked into Github a bit more and realized that Github is actually a resource for users of Git, an easy-to-learn-and-use SCM tool (software configuration management–basically, Dropbox for your software) that works from your command line (though there are also GUIs available, we’re pretty cool cats and prefer the command line–it’s simple and unambiguous).

Before beginning our journey to learn HTML and CSS it is important to understand the differences between the two languages, their syntax, and some common terminology.
As an overview, HTML is a hyper text markup language created to give content structure and meaning. CSS, also known as cascading style sheets, is a presentation language created to give content style and appearance.

Missions: Using Git: Setup Git. Git is a version control system (VCS) created by Linus Torvalds, the creator of the Linux kernel. Git is known as a 'distributed” VCS, or DVCS. This means that each user's copy of the code is a fully working repository and includes all previous commit information. Rather than connecting to a remote server as you would with Subversion or CVS, users can work productively offline, choosing to later sync their changes with a remote repository or create a patch file.
