We wanted to share this video by Clay Shirky who uses the software version control system git. Shirky talks about how tools promote arguments between humans, which leads to more chaos as well as constructive collaboration. What started with the printing pres and the scientific journal has now become real-time reporting and discourse on Twitter.
No matter what structure you prefer; weather it’s the decentralized collaboration through git, or a more centralized revision control with SVN, Mercurial or the software of your choice, if you’re not programming by yourself, and even then, you may want to setup a version control system for your e-commerce store.
If you have more than one person working on your code base, you should install a software version control system. We’re happy to answer any questions if you leave a comment below, or feel free to contact us in any other way.
