This course works you step by step through the process of learning Git and Github. Version control (which is also known as a Revision Control System) is a system that records changes to a file or set off files over time so that you can recall specific versions of the file or files later. With version control you can keep track of changes made to a file, who made those changes or even chose to discard those changes.
Git on the other hand is an open source distributed version control system which is designed to handle from small to large scale projects with speed and efficiency. In other word git is tool used for version control.
GitHub is a code hosting platform for version control and collaboration. It lets you and others work together on projects from anywhere.
Developing any software today without any form of version control is very risky, it’s like working on a project with no backup a total disaster.
Some of the benefits of Version Control includes:
A complete long-term change history of every file. This means every change made by any individuals over the years. This includes created, edited and deleted files are all tracked and recoverable.
Facilitates Collaboration – Team members can work concurrently on the same project using branching and merging feature of version control system.
Ability to trace all changes that has been made to the project
