Let's Git before GitHub

What is Git?

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.

So it is a tool to control and manage your code like tracking changes, keeping the history of all changes, switching versions, and lots of things.

Some important concepts you should learn:

  • Making and committing changes
  • Staging
  • Stashing
  • Branching
  • Squashing

What is GitHub?

So git is a tool to manage your project. Now imagine, if you want to add invite others to collaborate on your project and build together. What will you do? Share your computer? No, you have to share your code through some medium and others will make some changes and then they share updated code with you and then you make some changes, and so on... What if there is someplace to host your code and everyone works together? Here comes GitHub into action. GitHub is a place for collaboration.
