A little while ago, I came across SourceTree desktop app, a Graphics Interface Version Control Software from Atlassian. If you are working alone and just want to keep tabs on the changes you alone make to your projects, it’s the perfect solution. I’m mentioning this now, because of the conflict that had arisen between my MAMP Pro‘s Apache Server and the default Apache Server on my Mac. I’m not giving up on that route, because I still think it’s very important to gain command of Command Line beyond just Apache and local development, and I still also want to learn it because the Varying Vagrants Vagrants software for local development uses Command Line heavily, and I want to be able to use it for local development. However, sometimes you need to get things done quickly, efficiently, and yesterday, so it’s good to know that there are other great Version Control options out there when you want or need them. In fact, I am using it today to get ahead with the development of this site. Recently, I decided to do a complete revamp of this site and my company’s parent site, interglobalmedianetwork.com. They both were using older themes that were a bit outdated both in look and most probably code as well. I also tossed out old content, and am starting afresh. Some things just no longer applied to either the company, its branding, or what I have to offer!
