Version control is one of the most important aspects of creating an app, website or web app. In Software development, there are often multiple versions that are created, with one being better than the previous one. However, sometimes the newer version might not work the way you want it to be, in which case it is important to be able to track your changes and backtrack to what you were previously doing. This is where Git and Github can help!
So, what exactly is Git?
Git is a version control system that tracks changes in computer files and is commonly used in software development to keep track of changes between the different coding files. In case the new code breaks something, Git can be used to access the file before the change was made and restore the previous file until the new code is fixed. It can also help keep track of who made the last modification.
Github is a version control repository that adds to Git’s distributed version control and source code management (SCM) functionality with its own features such as collaboration, feature requests, bug tracking, wikis and even task management. Github allows people in the industry to help you solve bugs and kinks out of your code, as well as add to the coding if you wish for them to help.
