@casualjim has written a great Git and GitHub Survival Guide over on his blog. It’s great for beginners, especially if they use Windows.

As he says:

Lately I’ve been helping a few people to get started on Github. I use git at the command line and my survival guide is also based on that way of interacting with Git. So I thought I’d write the procedure up so that I can just point people to this page.

Thanks Ivan!
