Since you happen to be reading through the opening pages of Foundation Version Control for Web Developers then it’s safe to say you have some interest in finding out a little bit more about version control. It may be true that this new interest isn’t actually your own, but instead comes from a friend, colleague, or employer who thinks getting a bit more knowledge on the subject would be beneficial to you. Either way, throughout the course of this book you’ll be walked through the basics of version control using Subversion (SVN), Mercurial, and Git, getting to know each of them a little better as the chapters go on. I’ll cover setting up a development environment first, just in case you’re really new to the development scene, then the programs you can use for versioning your code (Chapter 5), and even how to dive into Terminal and all your versioning needs with commands (Chapter 9). Don’t worry if any of this seems daunting. As you progress through the chapters you’ll feel your confidence in version control growing, and before long you’ll be a versioning master!

Foundation Version Control for Web Developers explains how version control works, what you can do with it and how.
