Documentation and Versioning

I’ve been trying to understand a little more about the workflow of version control that my technology colleagues talk about all the time. It’s particularly relevant now that we’re all collaborating (me included) on a technology problem that I will be the documentation guy of. I figured I could write (my strength) about a subject I know much less about (this tech thing we’re doing) using the tools of the trade (version control and documentation pages).

I learnt how to use Git & GitHub a few years ago, but like all things unused, they are far away in the recesses of my mind. Now is the time to learn from the inside from those who use this tool everyday, and learn to contribute to the repository (aka repo), and learn the workflow.  This video I discovered over the weekend was most useful as a refresher.
