Overall Satisfaction with Git

Git is used across most of the organization, if not all of it. Git is a Version Control System, which means that allows you to "backup" and control who edited your files, providing its best value when it comes to plain text files, such as code.
  • Git is a distributed system. Usually adding the word "distributed" makes things very complex and messy, but not with Git, thanks to its branches and merge control.
  • It's insanely fast.
  • Merges sometimes will produce conflicts that are time-consuming but its resolution is trivial if you consider the history of changes.
  • Huge positive impact, but I'm unable to provide a number to it.
The documentation is more than necessary to understand and work with it. The community of users is huge, so the internet is full of references on how to solve any kind of situation. The software is so simple, that reproducing a situation in order to help someone takes no time.

Do you think Git delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Git's feature set?

Yes

Did Git live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Git go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Git again?

Yes

Git is the best suitable tool whenever you need to backup your documents quickly. Even more so if you need to keep track of who made changes.

It is not suitable when you want to work in a "blocking" mode, meaning:
- blocking any other user from editing while another user is editing.
- setting editing permissions per file avoiding users to edit or read a specific file.
