Description

Git is a version control system for tracking changes in code. In previous labs, you learned how to use both commits and branches in Git. Commits and branches are two of the most useful features in Git, but they're only a part of what Git has to offer. Companies also use Git because of the ability to combine features like commits and branches with workflow management principals like remotes (remote repositories holding the same codebase your local one does) and the ability to undo things like commits. Combined, all these resources begin to make Git the incredibly useful tool it is for version control management.

In this lab, you'll practice working with multiple remotes to show the distributed nature of Git. You'll also use Git to undo a commit.
