Git Questions – How to get started with a GitHub project

In this week’s Git questions we take a look at a simple but rather important step when you’re working on a GitHub Open Source project – how do you get started?

In the video, Gary and I demonstrate how to fork and clone a project (I chose some Spring example code and Gary chose a JavaScript framework) and how to set up additional remotes so that you can easily keep your fork up-to-date as per our last video. This time Gary’s demonstrating the functionality in WebStorm while I stick with IntelliJ IDEA, as usual the features we demonstrate are common to all the IntelliJ Platform IDEs.
