In order to enjoy all the collaborative functionalities of Git and GitHub you first need to install Git.
Installing Git is the easiest thing in the world, and it's the same as installing any program to your computer.
Whether you run Mac, Linux or Windows, you may simply download a binary from the tool's downloads section.
Simply download the binary, double click it, and follow the installation instructions.
This will enable git command line tools and in order to verify you may simply open up a terminal and run
