Development Tools Introduction to Git First Commits Staging Changed Files

Why does this video not teach us to "push" the changes to the repo? When i use git, commit does not push the changes.

I have used git for personal use and if i dont "push" the changes, commits dont end up in the repo. All commits do is push to the local repo on persons computer, but does not actually update the repo the entire team will see. will that come later in this course?

Hi there, James Hanley! Yes, it will come later in the course. Right now, it's just teaching you how to use git correctly from the command line and all of the really powerful things you can do with git from the command line. Towards the end of the course, you will also use git to clone a repository from GitHub using the command line and then push changes to a repository via the command line.

It's coming up! You're just not quite there yet :smiley:

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
