So you don’t know git

Source control is a crucial tool for software development teams everywhere. I believe it to be so critical that if I come across clients who aren’t using it, we drop everything else to implement source control first.

During this week’s video, I showed a bit of my source control workflow: creating a branch, committing and pushing code, merging the completed branch.

If you’re tired of saving multiple copies of your script files with different dates or version numbers in the filename to differentiate them – and I know someone’s out there doing that right now – then I’m here to tell you: there’s a better way, and it’s called source control.

I happen to use `git` for all my source control needs, although there are many other options. Here are some of my preferred git resources:
