What are the advantages of employing a version control system?
All team members can work freely on any file at any time using the Version Control System (VCS). VCS allows you to combine all of the changes into a single version.
Inside the VCS, all prior versions and variants are properly stored. You can request any version at any moment that meets your needs, and you'll have a snapshot of the entire project at your fingertips.
Your VCS asks you to provide a brief summary of the changes you've made whenever you save a new version of your project. You may also examine what changes have been made to the file's content. This allows you to see what modifications were made to the project and who made them.
A distributed VCS, such as Git, allows all team members to have a complete history of the project, so if the central server goes down, you may use any of your teammates' local Git repositories.
