Hi there, I've just signed up and looking forward to meeting you on Wednesday to do the tutorials on Git. I've created the Git Hub account. I used upper case in my username: CarolinaS, that means that now I have this address: https://github.com/CarolinaS/thursday.git. Will that work or do I have to change the name to be all lower case? I know that with PHP some paths have to be all with lower case. Thanks a lot!

Should be fine, I have upcased chars in my GitHub name, so does @Rosa-Fox

Wow, well I'll do my homework then!
When configuring a Git user on a Mac, I have to write my name:
git config —global user.name “Carolina Sawney”

Is this the same as the Git user name (CarolinaS), the same as my Mac user name (Carolina), does this matter or can be anything else? See you on Wednesday!

CarolinaS is the Git user account name. That's what I meant.

I’m fairly sure it can be anything you like. It’s the name that each commit you make will have recorded against it. No need for it to match up with your account on GitHub. I think accessing GitHub with the ssh keys you will have set up is enough for GitHub to authenticate you.
Most people have their name in their .gitconfig set up as their full name just like you have there.
