What is Git?
hmm, what is Git? Did not we discuss Version Control System? Git is a version control system. As we discussed above. The version control system can track modification in program files and help to coordinate and contribute to the same program files. It’s a distributed Version Control System. So it does not necessarily any central Server to backup all the versions of the program files. Rather, Everyone can make its own branches, and clone on the local system. While keep tracking the full history of their own clone. Finally, the clone can marge with the master repository without any conflict. I understood you are wondering about the word Repository. Really are you wondering about it?🤔 O let’s discuss it.
What is a Repository?
Believe me. The repository is nothing. It’s just like a folder contains the source code. But do not be confused, its also known as Repo.
