Git is a distributed version control system (DVCS). In particular, it is used in the Linux kernel and for PHP. It is an open source software solution created by Linus Torvalds in 2005.

Among other functions, Git is used to “commit” locally, then to push a set of local commits to other developers. It also enables the use of a development workflow, such as subjecting a code’s transmission to approval by one of the developers. Git’s ability to easily create and administrate branches makes it a top-grade tool for open source project development.
Git is distributed under the GPL v2.
It is written in C, Bourne Shell and Perl.

“ Ancien utilisateur de SVN, passer à GIT n'a pas été simple. Il faut avouer que son utilisation est beaucoup plus complexe que SVN, et les interfaces graphiques ne sont pas "user friendly". Mais lorsque l'on commence à maîtriser les différentes commandes, on ne peut plus s'en passer. GIT est performant et déborde de fonctionnalité. Depuis que l'équipe l'utilise, on ne perd plus notre temps à résoudre des conflits de fichiers supprimés comme c'était le cas avec SVN. ”
