Version control

Version control is an important cog when working in software development, It allows you to monitor changes made from version to version. for example, when using version tracking a developer might want to compare version 1.1 of a game with version 2.2 of the same game to see what changes had occurred. version control systems keep track of every version of the software, this becomes a straightforward task. Knowing what changes have been made will help with comparing the performance of particular versions, working out when bugs were introduced (or fixed), and so on.

I have used a kind of version tracking myself in previous projects, last year we were tasked with an arduino project to develop a program that controlled traffic lights. I had numerous versions saved just in case I needed to revert back to and earlier version because i had destroyed the current working code. It also helped me when looking back at previous versions of the changes i made and how i benefited from the change and if i needed to revert the change to further my project.

I am also currently using the same method in my Java project in my programming assignment.
