Topic: An introduction to GIT

In software development, Git is a distributed revision control and
source code management system with an emphasis on speed.[4] Git was
initially designed and developed by Linus Torvalds for Linux kernel
development. Every Git working directory is a full-fledged repository
with complete history and full revision tracking capabilities, not
dependent on network access or a central server. Git is free software
distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License version
