Getting started with source control

Source control (also known as version control) is an essential part of DevOps. It is a collaboration platform that can be used by the development team to track and manage changes in the source code. It provides a historical version of each source code file in the project. It also helps resolve conflicts when merging changes from multiple developers. Azure Repos is a set of version control tools that we can use to manage our code.

Here is a list of source control benefits:

  • Ability to create multiple workflows for development, production, and testing.
  • There is a lot of collaboration that must be done by the development team to deliver the product, especially at the source code level, to maintain a common repository when multiple developers are working on the same project.
  • Source control supports us tracking and managing all the changes that have been made to the code by multiple team members. This is very important, especially when...
