Git: Push and pull

In Git you always commit locally.

You can also commit offline, not connected to the network.

Then once you’re ready you push them to the server, so your team members, and everyone that has access to the repository an access the latest version of the code.

Push sends your changes.

Pull downloads remote changes to your working copy.

This is key to collaboration with other team members, because you work on something independently, and once you are ready, you send the code you wrote to others.

But before you can play with push and pull, you need to add a remote.
