What is Git and What does it Mean?
Git is a Version Control System created by Linus Torvalds the same person that has created Linux if you don’t know what Linux is please check my blog at Linux. Now, why he created Git. So, What happens you know, when we talk about Linux kernel it’s Open-source and anyone can contribute. So, if you living in a place in the world you can contribute to the Linux kernel. Now, what you can do, you can download the copy of the Linux kernel and you can add your features and you can submit it there. By the way, they will not accept your request by default, but you have to provide some new features. The important thing is you can be a contributor to Linux kernel. So, In this world, we have millions of programmers if everyone is trying to work on one software how they can manage it. It is easy to manage? No, It’s very difficult, trust me. Even if you have four people working on a concept it will be difficult for you to manage that project. So, What he came up with the concept called Git. So, It handles merging of different source code form different people and maintaining versions so those things are provided by Git.
Git allows a team of people to work together, all using the same files. And it helps the team cope with the confusion that tends to happen when multiple people are editing the same files.in simple terms, git allows managing many people to work on the same project or file.
