Version Control Systems



Version Control System (VCS) is a software that allows to manage changes of documents, programs, images and other information that is stored in form of computer files.

Some popular Version Control Systems:
Subversion - cross-platform open source VCS with great User Interface implementations (TortoiseSVN is the most known implementation for Windows shell integration).
Git - open-source VCS for distributed development that does not require a central server, yet lacks a convenient UI.
Mercurial - yet another distributed open source version control system which is less popular than Git (5 times less popular, if you trust Google).
TFS - is a Microsoft product offering source control, data collection, reporting, and project tracking, and is intended for collaborative software development projects. It is available either as stand-alone software, or as the server side back end platform for Visual Studio Team System (VSTS).
