Creating a New Project With Git

In this lesson, you will create a new project and learn how to use Git to track it.

Creating a new project directory

Let’s start by creating a new working directory or folder in the terminal. We’ll call the new working directory test_project. You can create a new directory by using the following command:

mkdir test_project

Once we have created the new directory, we will need to set that as the current working directory. We will do that by entering the following command:

cd test_project
