The Power of Git for Software Developers

If You are a one-person software developer who does not need to interact with other developers in a single project, You might not be familiar with Git. But I will tell you later on, a reason why You might still need it very badly.

Short Explanation of Git

Git is a very powerful and currently the most popular version control system in the world. It works perfectly for software houses who manage a lot of resources in a single project, starting from system analyst, frontend programmer, backend programmer, software tester, and so on. Using Git, everyone in the system can check and track every changes in something called version control.

For example, a frontend programmer makes changes to source code, adding a new chat feature for a website, then commit those changes with some helpful descriptive messages. After committing the changes, everyone who has access to its Git repository will be notified and soon realized that there is a new version of source code in the system. They can see which files and which lines has been changed by the frontend programmer. Even further, everyone can still see the previous versions and track the changes for some purpose, for instance : bug fixing.

Implementation

The most popular Git system today is Github. You may start creating a new Git and Repository by visiting https://github.com. Sign Up and quickly click the button Start a Project, fill in the repository name, and then upload your project files into the repository. You can upload via Github website using zip file, or to make it easier, you can download github desktop to integrate with your files in your computer faster.

Looking at Github Desktop Screenshot above, we can tell that Github Desktop will automatically show every changes in every files in the project before we can decide to commit the changes. This feature is very handy for those who usually write down and compare changed files manually from an app like beyond compare or something else.

For those who develop apps alone, there is also one interesting thing, it can also be integrated with Git ftp which will automate your version control deployment system. Git FTP will automatically check which files are changed, and upload only those changed files into the testing or production server. I will make a separate post regarding this particular feature to cover more detailed step by step explanation.
