Version Control is the management of changes to documents, computer programs,large web sites, and other collections of information.
Version control systems (VCS) most commonly run as stand-alone applications, but revision control is also embedded in various types of software such as word processors and spreadsheets,etc.Version control allows for the ability to revert a document to a previous revision, which is critical for allowing editors to track each other’s edits, correct mistakes, and defend against vandalism and spamming.
Git is a version control system for tracking changes in computer files and coordinating work on those files among multiple people.It is primarily used for source code management in software development but it can be used to keep track of changes in any set of files.
Git is useful because:
- It allows multiple users to make changes to a file at the same time.
- It keeps track of the changes made and the details of those changes.
- It allows us to rollback to a previous version if any problem occurs.
