New! We've Added Version Control
You can now host your own version control repositories using git and/or subversion!
Version control creates the ability to manage changes of an application. Versioning files is a tremendous asset, especially when you have multiple developers working on a single project, because it allows collaboration and sharing easily. Without version control, developers will eventually "step on each other’s toes", so to speak, and may overwrite each other's code without even realizing it. Using these version control systems allows one to observe the modifications, and quickly update changes made by another developer. Sometimes there are conflicts, but you will be alerted and allowed to merge them like a champ!
Git and Subversion are two of the more popular version control systems today and will be around for a while to come.
