Let me ask you a question: How mad do you get when you have to remember which files you edited and select them on FileZilla to upload to the server? That’s right – very mad. And sometimes you just upload the whole project because you don’t remember what you edited. I have four words for that: “Been there; done that”.
As they describe it:
Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency.
If you develop websites, like me, or write software of any kind, you should be using a version control system, and Git seems to lead the herd and I personally use it and I recommend it to anybody. This little tutorial is going to teach you how to set up Git on a computer running Ubuntu.
