Getting Git Head over to the main git website and download the appropriate git for your OS. Or you could do one of the following: Linux: sudo apt-get install git or sudo yum install git OS X: brew install git or just download the client. Windows: The easiest thing is to use Chocolatey and run cinst git. Powershell users can also install posh-git: cinst poshgit. Learning Git If you wanted to get started with a rapid immersion course on git, I recommend Git Immersion.
