Version control should be an integral part of every software project, yet many new developers tend to ignore this important tool until a catastrophe occurs. The reality is that it's pretty easy to incorporate version control into your development process, and after you do, you'll wonder how you ever got along without it.
Git, one of the most popular open source version control systems, is user-friendly and it makes version control a snap! In his Internet.com screencast video, Jason Gilmore introduces you to Git, showing you how to integrate Git into your software project and introducing several key commands for adding and committing files to your repository, reviewing log messages, and reverting changes.
You'll also learn how to create your first GitHub-hosted project, and how to synchronize GitHub with your local repositories.
