The terminal in VS Code is one of the greatest things about it. In this tutorial, we will use the terminal to work with GitHub. From one place, you can clone, create, or checkout Git repos.

I will show you how to use VS Code's terminal to setup Git, create an SSH connection, create a clone from an existing GitHub repo, create and merge branches, create a local repo, and a few key commands you can run to make your Git process more fluid.
