By using the help of GIT, you don't have to worry about the program code that you are working on clashing, because each developer can create a branch that becomes their workspace.

Another cool feature is that we can comment on the source code that we have changed or added. That way, GIT can make it easier for other developers to find out what obstacles are being experienced by other developers. Here's how to install GIT on Windows.
