What’s Git and GitHub?

Git is an open source version control system designed to handle very large projects with speed and efficiency, but just as well suited for small personal repositories (collection of resources that is accessed to retrieve information); it is especially popular in the open source community. With GitHub you can host your public and private projects there and use it to collaborate on projects.

What the experts say about Git & GitHub

Ruby Master, Josh Susser in a recent interview with RubyLearning said:

First off, get an account on GitHub. (If you haven’t learned git yet, get going on that too – it’s the future for open source SCM.) Then do some exploring around the various projects and see where you think you can jump in and contribute something. Pick a project that is now under development and has an active community. You’ll have enough going on that you don’t want to be championing a project just yet.
