Version Control and Git
Why use Git? What is the benefit to having version control? In the early days, people created a file and named it final. Then final 1.0. Then final 1.5. Then Final 2.0. "I swear this is the final version." Needless to say, there was a lot of toe-stepping. Git was created to allow people to easily organize and contribute to projects.
In this episode, the Grok crew shows the advantages of using Git as version control. How do you know who worked on what part of a project? When and why did someone make a change? How do you maximize the effectiveness of this project?
Josh, Anton, and Joseph discuss commits - a snapshot of your project at any given time, branching and merging - bringing your commits to a team environment, as well as their favorite git commands to make workflow with a team seamless and efficient.
