I'll be working on Windows, so if you want a prettier setup than what Git Bash offers, you'll need to install both Git Bash and ConEmu. ConEmu is a wrapper that has a better UI than default Git Bash. Here's a tutorial on how to set up your own: Get a Functional and Sleek Console in Windows.

To configure your Git install:

git config --global user.name "Chris Sevilleja"
git config --global user.email chris@scotch.io

You can also check your config using:

# view the entire config
git config --list

# view a specific config setting
git config user.name
Chris Sevilleja
