A LIST OF CONTEXTS WHERE VERSION CONTROL IS USED AND WHY.
Version control is the management of changes to a document or set of documents so that you can recall specific versions later. With a version control system, you can take a snapshot of your work and save it in a special database called a repository. This can enable you access the work later. Below is a list of contexts when you can use version control;
· To keep track of the changes made to your work with time.
· It can also be used in the case where you want to revert your work or code to the original work and remove the changes made.
· Version control can also be used to compare changes made in your work or code by the specific people.
· Version control can enable you recover lost files or even recover lost work.
· With version control, you can always track who made changes to your work and at what specific time and date.
· You want to prove that a particular change broke or fixed a piece of code.
