Introduction to Git
Distributed development allows developers to clone multiple projects’ Git repositories and work on them without worrying about versioning. Git is a version control system that tracks changes in a project directory. Git is an open-source distributed version management system that can handle small to large projects efficiently and quickly. Linus Torvalds was the first to develop it.
Git is used for version control in a large number of commercial and open-source projects.
