Learn Version Control using Git and GitHub - The Complete Startup Guide for beginners
Version Control Systems are very helpful in tracking the changes that you make to a document. A program or having the changes and files kept in the track between the team members working for the same goal, for the same project. The time, the effort, the energy you spent to have the documents aligned or you want to revert to the document or you want to collaborate between the team members working on the same project and same document will be very less or even zero. That is you don't have to spend any time and effort for managing the documents between the teams and merging them.
So it’s very important and very useful to have your project or files kept within a Version Control System so that you can revert to any version that you saved before any time or even if you revert, you can go beyond that point and get the latest version of the repository.
In software companies that are dealing with medium scale or large-scale projects, the team will be having the project files inside a Version Control System and they will work within the Version Control System. The most popular of the Version Control Systems used around the world is Git.
