Practical Git: Sync local and remote repos with git pull

Practical Git: Sync local and remote repos with git pull

1:38
`git pull` lets us get the latest changes from our project's remote repo (most likely from co-workers or other developers working on our project) and merge (combine) them with our local code. It's kind of like Dropbox for code, but you tell git when you want it to get the latest changes from the remote when it is most convenient for you. In this lesson, we use `git pull` and discuss how it is a shortcut for running `git fetch` and `git merge`.
