To allow version control and collaboration we are going to use GitHub.

“GitHub is a code hosting platform for version control and collaboration. It lets you and others work together on projects from anywhere.”

Even if you are working by yourself, it is recommended to use version control for your web development.

By using Github, we will have copies of our WordPress files (especially themes and plugins) and keep track of all the changes we have done over time.

We will use a free GitHub account and create only private repositories that can be accessed only by authorized users or teams.

If you don’t have a GitHub account yet, go ahead sign up for one.
