5. Make changes

Your project is now under version control and shared on Github,you can start making changes to commit and push. You can see I added a new ImageView reference to the MainActivity.java. Notice that after I made the change, the MainActivity.java file turned blue. That means the file now has uncommitted changes (and it doesn?t match the file in the Github repository).
