00:00 We're inside of a directory called utilityfunctions, which is a Git repo. One of our coworkers has been working on a new license for our project, but if we take a look at the project contents, we don't see it here. So, let's run the git-pull command. Now we have the latest changes from other developers on the same project.
00:20 Inside of the output of the git-pull command, we can see exactly what was changed. It looks like a new file, license.md was added, and the README file was changed. Now, if we output our directory contents, we can see the new file here, license.md.
00:36 Let's review what happened here. First, we went into our git repo. We have our normal files that we were working with. Then, when we run the git-pull command, it pulls in the changes from the remote repo that other developers have added.
00:52 The git-pull command is actually a shortcut for two other commands that we can run individually if we want. The first is git-fetch, which tells our local repo to grab the latest changes from the remote repo, and store them locally, but don't actually include them in our local code just yet.
01:08 The second is the git-merge command, which tells our local repo to merge in the changes that we got from the git-fetch into our actual code.
01:18 Once again, when we run git-pull, it's the same thing as running git-fetch git-merge. Often, when you want the changes from other developers on your project, all you need to do is run git-pull. This will fetch and merge the changes from the remote repo into your local repo.
