RoR Project - Pulling from github

Sorry for all the questions. I should write them all down and have 1 big question.

Anyhow. I am wondering how I would pull my project from github and start using it.

More out of curiosity than anything. I don't think I quite understand how it works.

Lets say I buy a new mac and I want to continue working on my project. How do I get the code from github and start working on it?

Near the start of the course I made a mistake. I re-installed rails and restarted the course. I tried to use the project files but for some reason they would not work.

What are the steps I would need to take to get the project files working?

I realise when writing this I can't fully explain what I am trying to do or the problem I am having... +10 points if you can de-code my babble ><

I'm going to take a guess here that your question is about how github works.

I'd suggest you start out with Intro to Git for Web Designers learn the basic ideas behind Git. When check out the awesome git guide to help you get started.

Finally test out your new skills with try.github.com it's a kind of code challenge from github.

Thanks again @James you have helped me a ton up till now!

I will start that on saturday :)

@Jack - I'll take my 10 points and save them. I'm hoping to save up for something awesome :smile:

Also, I updated the post with the actual link to the Git for Designers article.
