Program Overview

Source Code Management (SCM), also known as version control, is a tool that is used to track modifications to a source code repository. The main need for a source code management tool is to allow multiple developers to work on the same codebase simultaneously while also providing a way to track and revert changes as necessary.

Git is primarily used for Source Code Management (SCM), with its robust feature set of initializing and tracking the changes during software development.

By learning Source Code Management with Git, your team can leverage the features of clear code reviews, asset version control, feedback loops, and powerful branching patterns to help your developers solve problems and ship value.

Uptut can bring that leverage to your team with industry leaders and domain experts as your trainers, set apart with a hands-on curriculum.
