Some Pre-Learning#

We're going to be working with git, npm, and the command line quite a bit in this course. The uses will be simple, but you may want some additional information about each of these.

  1. Git
  2. Node
  3. Command Line

Again, don't worry. We will walk through all you need to know. However, you can do the following:

  1. Open Terminal (or Command Prompt)
  2. Check your npm and git versions.
    • npm --version
    • git --version

See, it's actually pretty easy to work with the command line.


Now, let's actually grab and set up the environment.
