What is Git?

In the last blog, we are going to discuss What is Git? 

Git is a distributed version control system for tracking changes in source code during software development. It is designed for coordinating work among programmers, but it can be used to track changes in any set of files. Its goals include speed, data integrity, and support for distributed, non-linear workflows.

Git is a mature, actively maintained open source project originally developed in 2005 by Linus Torvalds, the famous creator of the Linux operating system kernel. A staggering number of software projects rely on for version control, including commercial projects as well as open-source. I hope you have understood What is Git?

Now I will talk about Git Features that makes it stand apart.

Branching and Merging

Git allows and encourages you to have multiple local branches that can be entirely independent of each other. The creation, merging, and deletion of those lines of development takes seconds. This means you can do things like Frictionless Context Switching, Role-Based Codelines, Feature-Based Workflow, Disposable Experimentation.

Small and Fast

Git is fast. With nearly all operations are performed locally, giving it a huge speed advantage on centralized systems that constantly have to communicate with a server somewhere.


One of the nicest features of any Distributed SCM, included, is that it’s distributed. This means that instead of doing a “checkout” of the current tip of the source code, you do a “clone” of the entire repository. Multiple Backups, Integration Manager Workflow.

Data Assurance

The data model that uses ensures the cryptographic integrity of every bit of your project. Every file and commit is checksummed and retrieved by its checksum when checked back out. It’s impossible to get anything out of other than the exact bits you put in.
