What is git?
Git is an open source VCS (Version Control System) and is used for versioning (and tracking) changes in software development.
Wofür verwenden wir git?
Just like pretty much everyone who takes software development seriously, we use a VCS and we do our best. The advantages of using a VCS are too diverse to be listed here in full. In short, we believe it is important to always know when, by whom and why code has been added, removed or changed.
Compared to other VCS ‘such as “SVN” or “Mercurial”, git impresses above all with its great compatibility in the ecosystem of software and web development. Git is also extremely easy to learn and progressively works just as well for developing very small projects as it does for iterations on large products.
