How do I connect my Atom projects with Github?

I've installed Atom and I see Github is an available feature for uploading your projects. I created a Github account on their website. I cannot figure out how to get the Atom software to connect to my Github account. I'm a newb. Please help. Thanks.

You will first need to install git on your computer. You can get the download here: https://git-scm.com/downloads Once it is installed you will need to configure it... A few more links to help with Getting Started and Configuring git: https://git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Getting-Started-About-Version-Control#_getting_started https://git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Customizing-Git-Git-Configuration

Hopeully that helps :-)

I am running Windows. I thought Git was already integrated into Atom. I didn't think I had to download Git but I'll give that a try.
