Developed by Linux creator Linus Torvalds, Git is the most widely-used, modern version control system (VCS) in the world. This tool enables users and developers to collaborate on local machines/networks or via public servers. Developers should think of Git as their go-to collaboration tool.
Also, Git works seamlessly with GitHub (the world’s leading code hosting platform), though it doesn’t require the use of a public-facing service; in fact, Git can be easily used on a single machine or via a Git server on your own private network. Either way, collaboration on code or every kind of file is made exponentially easier.
This Git guide for IT pros ebook from TechRepublic provides a quick way to get up to speed on the VCS and better understand why and how Git’s impact on software development.
