Version control enables single authors or group collaborators to create and share project timelines, transparently tell the story of a project, manage collaboration, experiment with alternative options, and create back-up repositories. Git is one of the dominant, open-source, version control applications. GitHub is social coding and project cloud tool fed by a git remote. Come learn how all this works and create your own "Hello World" GitHub repository.
