Use Git Like A Pro!

Git is the most commonly used version control system. Git tracks the changes you make to files, so you have a record of what has been done, and you can revert to specific versions should you ever need to. Git also makes collaboration more manageable, allowing changes by multiple people to be merged into one source.
