Introduction to Git
In professional development environments, the code is written in teams of developers. From your colleague sitting around the corner to a remote developer living across the globe, anyone could be writing code with you and contributing to the same codebase. The best and most popular way to contribute code to a single codebase is Version Control Systems.
Version Control Systems
Version control systems are systems that allow us to contribute to and manage different releases and stages of a software product without actually having to keep multiple files or folders. They also make development within a team more manageable and less of a pain as developers don’t have to be trading folders, but rather communicate with a single source where all the changes are happening and everything is saved.
