git add .
git commit -m "My awesome commit message."

git add . means track everything in this directory. A period in UNIX-like system usually means everything. If you only wanted to track a few files… you’d need to specify them. Once you’ve added them to your head, you need to perform your first commit. You got EXACTLY the message you were supposed to.

Great job!
