Does anyone of you know why the GitHub desktop takes 30 to push, while the CLI only needs 4 seconds?

As a guess: it pulls first and then pushes.

Hi, I appreciate that you have posted about Git or rather something to learn and guide to source code management system for software development. This is another lesson learned for me.

OP Edit: added more links in the further reading section and to some of the todo sections

I do plan on finishing those sections when Uni eases up (probably in summer), for now you are going to have to use just the links.

I've used github before, as for git, I only use it because heroku.com requires it.
