Tutorial Summary

Before you can make larger changes using Git, you need to configure you Git program. Typically this is done via the command line — let's learn how!

To configure git on the command line, you'll need to run these commands just once. Don't forget to swap out "Your Name" and "youremail@domain.com" for your own name and email address.

git config --global user.name "Your Name"
git config --global user.email "youremail@domain.com"
