Purpose: we use GIT for version control management. It is widely used in teamwork. Standalone developers mostly do not prefer to use it. But in all types of development, we can use it to manage our software efficiently. We demonstrate how we can use the GIT version control in our software project through the step-by-step procedure. We will use Bitbucket and GitHub as GIT servers and SourceTree as GIT clients for the demonstration. The SourceTree has GUI, which we generally prefer. This paper might be helpful who are trying to integrate the GIT system into their project.

Design/Methodology/Approach: We create a new remote GIT repo (Repository) in Bitbucket and GitHub. Then install a GIT client into our system. The remote repo is cloned into our system through it. Inside the local repo, we add and modify files. After a good change, we must send it to the Stage. We are writing comments on it and committing to the changes. So, GIT can keep a change record. We can revert to the previous commit point if the current changes are unsuitable.

Findings/Result: Here, we demonstrate how to integrate Git easily. Individual researchers can incorporate GIT into their projects efficiently.

Originality/Value: Many documents are available on the net for version control system demonstrations. Here we demonstrate in different ways so that anyone can easily understand and integrate these efficient tools.

Paper Type: Experimental-based Research.
