In this lesson we install DVC, and initialize a DVC project.

Our aim is to show how to install DVC for the environment we are currently in, and start a new project with Git and DVC.

If you prefer to run locally, you can also supply the commands in this scenario in a container:

docker run -it dvcorg/doc-katacoda:base


Step 1 of 3

Step 1

Create a Git repository

mkdir example-get-started

cd example-get-started/

git init

DVC doesn't require Git and can work without it, but in practice it is almost always used with Git.
