Day 1: Overview

Welcome to Day 1! Today we are going to get setup with an account at GitHub and/or Bitbucket (or both).

As explained in the video, GitHub is one of the most popular places to setup remote repositories, and is where you'll find the bulk of the open-source projects you may want to contribute to. Be clear about one thing, however - Git and GitHub are NOT the same thing!

Our main goals for today are to get an account at one or both of the public websites and then to create our first repository at one or both of these websites.

At the end of the day, we'll have an account and a repository, and will be ready to start working with it soon.

Here we go with day 1!
