Using GIT for the first time can be exceptionally confusing – its a different world to a lot of the source control systems out there!
First off, download the GIT GUI; for this post, I’m running the Windows version.
You’ll need to create an SSH key if you haven't already got one for connecting to your GIT server; to do this click Help then select Show SSH Key. If you have an active key, it will show here – if not, click Generate Key.
Next, we need to sort out a repository.
Select Create New Repository.
You will need to specify a local path for the repository.
Once you have a repository up, you need to “pull” from the central store – click Remote, then Add. Fill in the details given to you by your GIT repository admin.
And you should be good to go.
