is a open source version control system to manage large scale or small scale projects. If your team is using Git, you do not have to train new hires on your workflow, because they’ll already be familiar with distributed development. Unlike SVN, Git is distributed version control system which generated local copy of remote repository into local for each developer. Merging and managing multiple branches is quite easy. Here are some useful git commands each developer need to know before using git.
