Version control

Advanced IT Terms | Verb

a blaming system put in place usually through Git, where you can track and manage changes to software code. Commands such as “Git blame” (you thought we were joking, right?) allow you to examine a file line by line and see when each line was modified and by whom. More broadly speaking, version control, also known as source control, allows you to manage changes to source code over time. This includes comparing versions, rolling back to a previous version, working on independent streams of changes, minimizing branch conflict and human error.


“When should you use a version control system?” “When your local files look something like Approved_Final_V1_DefinitelyFinal_Merged_06_27”
