Github desktop vs command line
Now that Github has a desktop client which makes this whole process easier, is there any advantage to working with Git in the command line?
I think that it's absolutely worth learning the command line for Git. Github desktop won't be downloaded on every computer you may use in the future yet every computer definitely has a terminal. Also, there's a lot more power and flexibility when using the command line. Further, knowing the command line becomes even more valuable as you learn other tools like Node.js or npm, so I think the more you use it and get comfortable with it the better you'll be at picking up other technologies that utilize the command line.
