Git 2.28


Git is a control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency. Git relies on the basis of distributed development of software where more than one developer may have access to the source code of a specific application and can modify changes to it which may be seen by other developers. It allows the user to have “versions” of a project, which show the changes that were made to the code over time, and allows the user to backtrack if necessary and undo those changes.


Git allows a team of people to work together, all using the same files. And it helps the team cope up with the confusion that tends to happen when multiple people are editing the same files. Git provides each developer a local copy of the entire development history, and changes are copied from one such repository to another.
Distributed System
Non-linear Development
These features have made Git the most reliable and highly used Version Control System of all times. The central repository of Git is termed as GitHub. GitHub allows to perform all the Push and Pull operations with the use of Git.
