Creating Repositories in GIT for the First Time

First create a public account in the git. Before you create any repositories in the git, ssh key must be generated and uploaded in to the git. Since the git has a nice entry about how this can be done I will simply point to that link. The main point is not to create any repositories before finishing,

  1. Generating a ssh key
  2. Add the key to the git account you just created.
  3. Once this is done, you are ready to create your first repository
  4. Once you done that try

    , you should see

Once you done that you could link a new directory and add stuff into that or link existing source code library. The instructions given in the above link are given for creating a new directory.
