In this video Edward Thomson demonstrates how to get started with creating your first Git repository inside of Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS).

You'll learn how to:

1. Create your first VSTS account

2. Create your first VSTS hosted Git repo and commit your code using the Git command-line tools on Windows securely through the integrated VSTS account authentication

3. Use the web UX of VSTS to view your committed source code right from the web browser including side-by-side file compare (diff view), branch visualization and even rich markdown support, all powered by the same code editor (Monaco) that also powers other Microsoft editors such as Visual Studio Code!

4. Clone your repo back down using SSH authentication to a mac developer environment and edit the code locally using Visual Studio Code. We’ll then sync those changes back up to VSTS

5. Use the powerful VSTS Pull Requests feature to review committed changes to your repo enabling a code review process for any incoming code changes from you or your team members

6. Adding additional Git repos to your team project to optimize how your various code projects are organized within your team across multiple Git repos
