For the workshop the command line will be used so you can focus on understanding the commands that are used.
You can follow along with either a command line or graphical git tool. Please note that installing a graphical tool for git should also provide git on the command line, so no need to install both!
You can simply install the git command line tools from www.git-scm.com.
If you have Ubuntu, then you can use the Ubuntu software center or install git on the command line
apt-get install git
The simplest graphical tools to install are from Github. If you browse any repository on www.github.com you will notice a “Clone in Mac” or “Clone in Windows” button at the top left of the page. If you have not Git tool installed, then you are redirected to a page offering to install the Github graphical git client for you.
