Getting started with Git requires you to add a .git folder to your project on your machine and then set up that folder to point to a remote repository. In this lesson, we walk through using git init and git remote to do this; we use GitHub for this remote repository as an example, but keep in mind that any Git repo hosting service will work.

I was wondering why you decided to jump directly to using remote this early in the course? Apart from there being more options to set up remote repos, (such as bitbucket for example), remote repos aren't not particularly a fundamental aspect of beginning git. I think this should be explained better in this section.

Hey Stephen, thanks for the feedback and watching. I'll add more information to the lesson's description to explain that GitHub is just one example of many options for setting up a remote; however, I do feel that showing setting up a remote this early is valuable as the greatest benefit of Git (in my opinion) is the distributed nature of working with multiple people and multiple machines.
