The importance of version control.


Prerequisite: Not every project we undertake requires version control.

When it comes to the importance of version control such methods can prove to be part of a beneficial workflow. Im a web developer who creates online solutions for individuals and businesses. These client projects often don’t require version control such as GIT.

For the rest of my spare time that I spend dabbling in the realms of other coding languages & frameworks I rely on GIT version control as much as the next person. Two of my favourite languages/frameworks (Javascript & Ruby On Rails) are heavily dependant on the relationship of version control and repository websites like Github & Rubygems. If I didn’t make use of these resources or understand them at least a little then functional masterpieces in the above languages and inclusive frameworks wouldn’t exist.

Feel free to visit my Github profile & familiarise yourself with the platform and how project dependancies are created and managed.
