# What is `git`?
<!-- ![](slides/img/git_definition.png) -->
`git` is a **version control system** (VCS) for tracking changes in computer files and coordinating work on those files among multiple people [1].
Designed and implemented in 2005 by **Linus Torvalds**

`I'm an egotistical bastard, and I name all my projects after myself.
First Linux, now git.`
Linus Torvald (2007-06-14)
# What is the use of `git`?
* No need to fully rewrite code; **reuse code** and **save time**
* Keep the changes you made over time (**history**)
* Allows you to **backtrack** (if necessary) and undo unwanted changes
* Easily **add contributions** of your collaborators to the main code base
Other points to mention:
* git shall not be considered as a nuisance, but as a tool that should help to track and trace the code.
* git is not to track performance. Not using it shows exactly the opposite.
