Once we have a remote repo (on GitHub or elsewhere), we'll need a way to bring that project onto our own computer. Cloning will do the trick for us:

git clone git@github.com:scotch-io/my-repo.git

Make sure that your SSH keys are setup and you have access to that repo. If you use the SSH url (git@github.com), then you will authenticate with SSH keys. If you use the HTTPS way (https://github.com/) then you'll authenticate with user/pass.
