In this video, I show you how to use Git and GitHub using Visual Studio Code. This is an up-and-running video, so you will learn the basics. I will teach you the bare minimum you need to know in order to manage your code locally using Visual Studio Code. I will also show you how to synchronize your code with GitHub.
I am a beginner and still learning all this myself, so please keep your comments positive and feel free to correct me if I say anything wrong.
