Source Control Management (SCM) is an essential component of any DevOps pipeline. Git is the leading source control tool, and an understanding of its functionality is useful in a variety of roles. This activity will guide you through the basics of installing git and using a git workflow. After installing and configuring git, you will make a code change, commit it, push it to a remote git repository, and merge it using a pull request.
