Signing up for a Git Repository in the Cloud
There are a number of providers that offer Git repositories that can be used to back up your repository and easily share your code with others. Here are a few options:
- Kiln unlimited free private repositories for teams of 2
- GitHub five free private repositories for any sized team
- Bitbucket unlimited free private repositories for teams of five
I've used all of these providers, and they all work well. For my own personal projects, I prefer to use Kiln mainly because Kiln allows non-coursework-related repositories.

The following steps will make it possible to easily update your repository directly from IntelliJ.
