Before start using Drupal, we suggest updating the code to get the latest changes. Go to the installation directory and start the "use_drupal" console. This console is a script to load the required environment variables and paths to make your Drupal installation work. It is useful to run it before using any commands included in the stack: mysql, php, drush and git among others.
Git allows you to upgrade your Drupal installation to work with the latest 8.x version. It is already configured with git autocompletion so using the Tab key you can see suggested options. The repository was also configured following the official recommendations from the Drupal project.
