    Git is a distributed form of source control. That means there is a copy of the source on your local and you can push your code up to GitHub to share it with others.

    Ok I got it working. The additional steps I took were:

    • Click on the Pencil icon on the bottom of the IDE.
    • Enter a message.
    • Click 'Commit All'
    • Click on the Up Arrow icon on the bottom of the IDE.
    • Click 'Push' on the Outgoing Commits.
