Source control isn’t simply for backup and history. If you have only been using Git after you’ve written code to commit and push, then you’ve merely scratched the surface of what’s possible. A tool like Git can be essential part of your development cycle. It can help you debug problems, communicate to your team, and be more productive. Combined with GitHub’s powerful pull request, issues and collaboration workflow and your team will be focusing on writing great software while the tools get out of the way.
