Geekers - If you are a developer, it won't be complete if you don't use the GIT application. The GIT application is a version control system that can be used by developers in developing an application or software together.


The main function of GIT is that it can set the version of your program's source code by marking lines and also which code you will replace and add.



GIT will actually make it very easy for programmers who want to know changes to the code they have made, when compared to creating a new file, for example programs.py, programrevision.py, lastrevision.py, and so on. So, in this tutorial, I will explain how to install GIT on Windows.

By using the help of GIT, you don't need to worry that the program code that you are working on will conflict, because each developer can create a branch that becomes his workspace.
