git installation


we use git for source code version control tool. before using git, let's install git first.

source code version controls

git can manage the version of the source code. managing version’s mean is storing and managing the editing history of the source code. you wanted to go before editing the source code but you didn’t remember where you edit. you were in trouble, weren’t you? if you use source code version control like git, you can solve this kind of situation. however git is not a magic tool like we push ctrl + z keys for going back to change text.

source code version control is that developer edits the source code and stores them to another space(Repository) with editing histories. and then if developer want to go back to the before editing, developer pulls the source code which is before editing from another space(Repository) via the source code version control like git.

git is the one of the source code version control and has many features. we use the parts of them, and actually we don’t know exactly what it is so we start to this blog. we hope this blog helpful for you too.
