Although installing the git source control package on any distribution is trivial, there is more to using it for source control on your local system than that. In this activity, the student will install Git, but will also set a few key parameters that will allow any changes to be identified with the user making them. At the end of this exercise, the student will understand the key global and local values that can be set in your Git configuration.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
