What is Version Control System ?

Version Control System is wise thing to use.Let me take you to the world where Version control system doesn’t exist ,you commit code to repository and something went wrong what next ? that is where version control system come into picture It allows you to revert selected files back to a previous state, revert the entire project back to a previous state, compare changes over time, see who last modified something that might be causing a problem, who introduced an issue and when, and more. Using a VCS also generally means that if you screw things up or lose files, you can easily recover. In addition, you get all this for very little overhead.

distributed version control system ?

A distributed version control system (DVCS) is a type of version control where the complete source code /codebase — including its full version history(all the commits made on particular project)— is mirrored on every developer’s machine
