Understanding git init

My code works. However, how did bash know to use the link it chose. How did it know to create the empty git repository in sorcerers-code? I have done the command line course, so it seems like there should be something done to get me to this file before I init?

Not going to put in a screen shot as this is all the code that is there…

$ git init
Initialized empty Git repository in /home/ccuser/workspace/sorcerers-code/.git/
$

The environment that git is executed in contains information about what the current directory is, which is where git init will create the new repository (unless another location is specified)
