Git makes it easy for software development and digital design teams to branch and merge. It enables multiple, simultaneous development vectors without disturbing the main branch.
Because the Git workflow model is based on task (issue) branches, organizations can divide work into individual tasks inside an issue tracker. Each task is implemented on its own branch, with an key included in the branch name, so it is easy to see the code implemented with each task, and to then make the specific changes to the master repository.
After the developers and engineers have cloned their workspace, they no longer require a connection to the central repository or the internet — their development can continue uninterrupted.
Because Git does not have the overhead of maintaining communication with a central server, the developers have better performance. The impact of this is particularly significant if they are at a remote site or location. Every team member can working productively independent of their location, internet connection, or central server load. The distributed version control model enables changes to be pushed back asynchronously and in a non-blocking fashion.
Git has a massive ecosystem of third party plugins and IDE integrations available for free download. All of these factors are contributing to Git’s strong popularity among software developers and digital designers.
