Open Source ABCs: Git

Welcome to our #100DaysOfOSS series. Until October 31, we'll be doing Open Source Software (OSS) terms from A to Z. We'll be diving into a different letter of the English alphabet, uncovering OSS concepts, and sharing our thoughts on them.

Today, we're covering the letter "G" for Git.

Git: Git is a popular distributed version control system widely used in open-source projects. It enables developers to collaborate, track changes, and manage source code efficiently.

If you want to learn more about what you can do with Git, check out my Git it! Series.

Now, we want to hear from you! What other OSS terms can you think of that start with the letter "G"?

Remember to use the hashtag #100DaysOfOSS if you share on social media, and don't forget to tag us @saucedopen so we can follow along.
